PART I. GENERAL OUTLINE OF A SOLDIER'S LIFE

Incidents of Camp Life

Great improvements have, of late years, been effected in the feeding of the Army, and although cooking in the open is attended by many difficulties, yet the joints are well cooked, and even pastry is made. Each Regiment has its master cook, who has to qualify at the School of Cookery.

Every encouragement is given to the men to learn swimming, and on a hot day the bathing parade is a popular event, the Regiments taking turns in the use of the ponds.

The "orderly men" are paraded, and the dinners are distributed by them to each tent. After a morning's work in the open air, the meal is thoroughly enjoyed.

After dinner, the men usually rest. The peace-fulness of one of the Volunteer Camps having been] disturbed by a "larky" volunteer, he is seized and tossed in a blanket.

CAMP LIFE AT ALDERSHOT-The Soldiers' Bathing Party

HERE the men are depicted coming down to the water-side with towels, and eager for their cooling swim. Scores of them jump in rapid succession from the spring board, diving into the water and swimming about in different style, with plenty of fun and splashing.

CAMP LIFE AT ALDERSHOT-Dinner in Camp

TOMMY's hard work makes him hungry and a soldier's appetite requires substantial satisfaction. As the picture opens, the camp kitchen, with potatoes boiling and meat roasting, is invaded by a score of orderlies, who file up and draw the rations, carrying them to the men who are already seated outside their tents. They fall to with great gusto, and the faces of those in the fore-ground are very expressive and provocative of laughter.

CAMP LIFE AT ALDERSHOT-A Lark in Camps 

WHILE the men are resting in their tents after dinner one of the soldiers runs up with a broom and teases his quieter comrades, until they become annoyed and make a rush for  him. They bring out a blanket, and, throwing him into it, toss him vigorously until they arc out of breath, the fun being stopped by a military policeman and sergeant, who endeavour to disperse the rioters.
