Derbyshire Territorials at Watford - August 1914-April 1916

PC by Harry Cull of Derbyshire Territorials
In updating the Harry Cull page I discovered an excellent web site dealing with the Derbyshire Regiment in the Great War.. In addition to the above picture by Harry Cull it had three other pictures of the 2/6th Battalion who arrived in Watford on 9th August 1915 and initially camped in Cassiobury Park, later moving into billets. There is a picture of them shortly after their arrival taken by Beckley, of 33 Mildred Avenue, Watford.  There are 3 three other pictures in Watford before you come to the above picture by Cull which is probably of the Derbyshire Scheme Men who came to Watford in January 1916. The Derbyshires left Watford. The Battalion, along with the rest of the 178th Brigade left for Ireland on 26th April, 1916.
Information to help me identify which units were based where in Hertfordshire always welcome
