    The description given for this item does not match what is seen. This is clearly Brighton's Royal Pavilion between November 1914 and the end of winter 1915 (I believe there is frost on the ground) There is nothing from the description in the footage.

    See history concerning the use of the Pavilion during WWI at: http://www.black-history.org.uk/pavilionindian.asp
