Battalion News – November 14, 1916

On Sunday November 14, 1916 at 5:00 am, the 161st Huron Battalion arrived at their first camp in England, an isolation camp at Dibgate Camp, 1 1/2 miles from Shorncliffe. This camp was only 22 miles from France, and was sometimes raided by airships. Close by was a flying base, that could be on the firing lines in France within 15 minutes. (Pte.
