MILITARY – Volunteer Encampment at Redcar

Accreditation The Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea Gazette 01/06/1877.


            On Tuesday (29/04) the volunteers of the North Riding 1st  Administrative Battalion will commence their annual three days training under canvas at Redcar. The present is their third year of camp life at the seaside, and the re-union is anticipated with much interest by the men, notwithstanding the strict discipline enforced and the unpleasant experiences in the matter of weather last year. The tents will be pitched on the race-course, and arrangements are being made for the reception of between 500 and 600 men.
