Tropical hygiene lessons are put into practice in the selection of the bivouac area, one man is always on the alert, anti-malarial precautions have to be taken and cooking and washing arrangements made to cover a period of three nights. Men are seen here building a "basha" shelter at the naval training establishment HMS QUEBEC, Inverary, Scotland. Here Marine landing parties are being trained in jungle-craft by Royal Marine staff under the guidance of the Royal Marines Eastern Warfare School, Brockenhurst, Hampshire. Thickly wooded hills, with some live palms and bamboos, gave a good imitation jungle in which tropical bridging work, bivouacking, patrolling, sniping and booby-trap lessons could be learnt.
