What a nice game you could have in amongst these little tents. We drove up here yesterday. It is their sports today so things will be lively ....

In July 1914 the local Territorial Force had their annual training camp in Ashridge on open ground to the North of Ashridge House, which can just be seen in the background. However events were rudely interrupted by the declaration of war.
