|Notes||Photograph of Hyhe (?) Barracks. One of exterior of building, one showing interior of barrack room. Note Home Service Helmets on the shelves above the beds, and Boer War campaign medals on Jacket. The man sat closest to the camera is a Company Sergeant-Major or Quater-Master Sergeant; the two stars on his sleeve are Territorial Force efficiency entitlements, discontinued on the outbreak of war: a man had to have successfully completed the Territorial Force training regime 4 times in order to qualify for each (normally indicating 4 years service, though not necessarily consecutive).|

Leonard Thomas Pearson, Army Chaplain's Department (attached No. 44 Casualty Clearing Station), discovered in a skip and deposited with the Bodlian Library. Revd. Pearson was interviewed by Lyn Macdonald for her book 'The Roses of No Man's Land', which contains two extracts and a photograph.
