I 1914 ARMY MANCEUVRES. I I Four Counties Area Round Hereford. I The Army manoeuvres will next year be carried out from September 15 to September 17 on the right bank of the River Severn, with Hereford as the manoeuvres centre. The area of operations will probably include Gloucester- shire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, and Monmouthshire. The area will be visited by most of the troops for divisional or inter-divisional training from the beginning of September. A number of Territorial units will be invited to take part, as in previous years, including a large force of yeomanry. The selection of an area for Army manoeuvres comparatively near to the sea will meet the wishes of Territorial commanders who desire to have a coast camp for the annual training of their battalions, as camping facilities exist in Monmouth and Glamorgan and on the North Somerset coast within easy marching distance of the manoeuvre territory. A large number of applications have been received from Territorials to visit seaside camps this year. Half the London Territorial infantry will visit the neighbourhood of Lulworth and large numbers of Territorial artillery will camp on Salisbury Plain. Additional facilities will be given to Territorials in general to camp there, by the absence of the 2nd Cavalry Brigade, which will be training elsewhere.
