The location of the 1905 annual camp was Ovingdean near Brighton in East Sussex. Attendance had grown again with 19 Officers and 331 Other Ranks in camp.Figure 61: Photographs of the annual camp in Ovingdean near Brighton in 1905 (The Bystander: 35, August 16, 1905).
The location of the 1906 annual camp of the King’s Colonials was Stowe Park in Buckinghamshire. The Regiment was really coming of age now in its development and discipline and this camp was the most well attended to date with 22 Officers and 353 Other Ranks swelled by the addition of two Troops from the Liverpool detachment.Figure 62: Photograph of the annual camp in Stowe Park in East Sussex in 1906. The Officer seated in the centre of the front row is Colonel Lawrence, Commanding Officer and the Officer on the far right is Captain Hamar Greenwood, 'B' Squadron.
Much of the time spent at camp was of course devoted to the care of the horses. In many of the anecdotes I have from former members of the King's Colonials and King Edward's Horse and their forebears was the love they had for their horses.Figure 63: Caring for the horses at camp.
