Between approximately 1935 and into the 1980`s the Army often
used Bevills land for exercises.
The two top photographs show the Army on exercises during 1935.

The top seven sepia photographs show the Territorial Army on manoeuvres around 1938/39.
Interesting to note:-
(a) not a gun in sight.
(b) it was a real occasion for the villagers who obviously saw this as an event worth visiting.
