Three new arrivals at HMS ROYAL ARTHUR are given a guided tour of the camp by the Belgian signalling instructor. One of the new recruits points to something across the camp. Behind the men are the huts in which they are billeted, three to a room. The training camp was a Butlin's holiday camp before the war, and these huts were the chalets in which the guests stayed.
