An Aeroplane Lands at Britons Camp, St Albans, in 1915

Maurice Farman MF-11 Shorthorn plane at Britons Camp, St Albans. These French planes were used for training and reconnaissance in the early part of the First World War. The cap badges show that most of the men were from the Lincolnshire and Leicestershire Regiments, who were at Britons Camp in the summer of 1915.
Unfortunately the picture provides no clues as to exactly where Britons Camp was situated. Can you help?
