Physical Description

A half-timbered Tudor style shooting lodge, with tiled roof and leaded windows. Familiarly known as the Bisley Hut, the shooting lodge was funded by donations, including some in memory of the fallen.

These include a donation from the architect B de C Jackson in memory of his brother Martin killed in action in 1916 and donations from widows and female relatives. The Journal of the Honourable Artillery Company records that 'two members have endowed cubicles in memory of a friend or relation who gave his life'.

Inside, the fireplace was donated in memory of Dermot O'Brien who was killed in 1917 and the panelling was donated in memory of Captain Tatham who was killed in 1914.

Co-ordinator's Comments:

Not all donations to fund the Bisley Hut were in memory of the fallen, however the Honourable Artillery Company gave the option for donations to take this form. This was taken up by a number of people, with donations towards both fabric and fittings.
