90SIT - E & C companies 8th Middlesex in West Street, Sittingbourne
E & C companies 8th Middlesex in West Street Sittingbourne. Soldiers of the 8th Middlesex march down West Street in Sittingbourne. We believe that this is a picture from 1914 as the territorial 1/8th were in Sittingbourne in 1914 before they embarked for Gibraltar in September 1914. In 1915 the battalion returned to England and was then deployed to the Western Front in March 1915
