Parade ground

The drawing below is not made to scale. It shows the dimensions of, and features included in, the construction of the parade ground in Tweedsmuir Camp.

The red arrow on the photograph to the first photograph below points to where the tennis court was located.

One of the tennis net post holes is shown in the second photograph.

Although the camp was to have been a temporary development, there is evidence to show that careful thought was given to its construction. For example, the water gully on the eastern edge of the parade ground (shown in the sketch below), is lined with bitumen and includes a raised splash back to help control the flow of rain water into a substantial drain. Details of the gully and storm water drain are illustrated in the graphic above, which is not made to scale.
