Five men with their kit are escorted into compound - they stand at ease and stare back at the camera impassively - Major C Boon and Lieutenant H G Evans, RASC, and Gunner D S Bevan, Sapper C Husan, and Gunner A H Tovee. Two regimental police look on, tapping their swagger sticks in their hands - one of them wears the badge of the West Surrey Regiment.
