Below: Papawal Canvas Camp situated a mile or two outside the town-ship of Greytown, and is used principally as a musketry camp for the mounted units and the Specialists. The two rifle ranges, which, with the machine-gun emplacements, are the principal features of the camp, are fully equipped in every way, and it is here that the Artillery, A.S.C., Mounted Rifles, Signallers, and Machine Gunners go through their musketry course.
