Date:1916 - 1917 (c.)

Description:The Church of England Men's Society was one of the religious groups that provided facilities for the troops to enjoy a Christian environment. Another postcard shows the opposite end of this hut where the refreshments and recreational area were available. This is the other end where religious services could be held.

The 1916 map of the Camp shows the location of some of the "huts for religion" but not which denomination they were. However, one report mentions the CEMS Hut being on "J" Lines but there may well have had more than one. There is also a mention of one being down near Sister Dora's Convalescent Home in Milford.
