A general view of the parade during General Sir Ian Hamilton's review of the 1st Division, taken from the far end of Mena Camp, 10 miles from Cairo. General Hamilton was supreme commander of the Allied forces in the Dardanelles campaign. The square based tents in the foreground are possibly officers' messes, while the bell shaped eight person Indian production (EPIP) tents are for sleeping accommodation. The row of four square buildings could be messes for the men.
