Like the earlier 1915 photograph, this was taken looking east towards the distant buildings of Underwoods Farm in the portion of the Depot north of Bassett Green Road. Compared with the earlier view, the camp had been considerably prettified.

A framed photograph, 1919

This large framed photograph bears the following inscription on a brass plate: 'Presented by the Warrant Officers, Staff Sergeants, and Sergeants of the Remount Depot, Swaythling, May 1919.' Presumably it was presented to the man in the photograph on his retirement from the Depot after the war. But who was he? (With many thanks to Michael Farmer.)
