The two huts to the right and left of this marker still exist. They are immediately outside the Martin-Baker gates. They have been modified for residential use, but are still recognisable and in a very good state of repair. I believe them to be two of the only three remaining structures of the WW1 army camp that was sited here. The right hand hut to the rear, I think, has been incorporated within a much larger modification. The hut to the left of this has been removed and a new property has replaced it.

The style of these buildings suggests they are the Royal Flying Crop barrack blocks - possibly converted to houses with rather flourishing gardens.

There was a WW1 army camp here in Higher Denham. The current roadway system here describes the original camp layout. The camp was associated with 16th (Church Lads Brigade) Battalion, The King's Royal Rifle Corps. After their departure to France, in April 1915, the camp was taken over by an RFC officer cadet training school (No.1 Officer Cadet Battalion). When this unit relocated in 1917, the camp became home to No 5 School of Military Aeronautics. This unit was disbanded in 1919 and the camp was sold off.
