Men of the Queen’s Regiment whilst in training in 1915. The 7/Buffs, was formed at Canterbury, Kent, in September 1914 and, like the 8th East Surreys, was first sent to Purfleet, then Colchester and then Salisbury Plain. Its parent regiment The Buffs (East Kent Regiment), was originally raised in 1572 by the citizens of London, to aid the Protestant cause in Holland and its members were largely local volunteers from the old City of London Train Bands.

The 6/Royal Berkshires was raised at Reading, Berkshire, in September 1914 and after training at Colchester, Essex, it too, arrived at Codford St. Mary in May 1915, to prepare for overseas service.
