Greve De Lecq Barracks

Saturday and the island lanes echoed to voices of charitable souls as they strode determinedly or meandered amicably chatting away on the Island Walk.

But tucked away at the bottom of a hill lay Greve De Lecq barracks where re-enactment soldiers from both Jersey and Guernsey, beautifully decked out in the uniforms of the day, covering early Jersey Militia, the first World War and the second World War, showed their wares.

Food in the mess tent and soldiers billeted in the barracks, whiled away the hours.
