  • Short Summary

    Hoylake detachment of Cheshire Voluntary Training Corps parade on field.

  • Description

    On Parade - a muster of Hoylake detachment of the Cheshire Division of the Voluntary Training Corps - 1916.

    Location of events probably in Cheshire or Merseyside.

    Troops, mostly in uniform, but some in civilian clothes, march about a field (in vague formation!). A sparse crowd watch and some young boys march along behind. The soldiers carry rifles that seem to be made from wood! (Still probably quite damaging if used, I expect.)
