Description:Church Parades were an important part of life within the Camps. Every Sunday or on special occasions there would have been services. Most denominations were catered for by the provision of meeting rooms with separate areas for indoor services. Each parade was normally accompanied by a brass band and these were provided by the various Regiments that were stationed there. On this photograph they are on the Parade Ground and the large building to the left is the Regimental Institute. The open fronted building on the right is a vehicle shed. The Regimental Hut was the largest of the huts on each Battalion Line and included a Corporals' Room, Supper Room, Games and Recreational Room and two Bars.

There is no reference to indicate where this photograph was taken and therefore it could be on any one of the 20 Battalion Lines.
