1915[edit]

  • ....there has been a great amount of overcrowding in the horse boxes used as billets in the....Camp. Please inform me if this has been remedied. [1]
  • ....if it had been intended continue occupation horse boxes I would have recommended building huts but these boxes will not be re-occupied when Battalion leaves. Expect order leaving Carlisle daily. Meanwhile average daily sick Company occupy boxes six out of strength 262 which is far better than that of any other company. [2]
