Back in June 2008 (blimey, so long ago?) I wrote a post here which mentioned the London County Council summer camp, or as we called them, “The Borstal Boys”. You can read it here https://goo.gl/nk8TKv The camp in my memory was set up near the Martello Tower.
I have recently obtained this photograph showing the camp at a different location which I cannot immediately identify. Any ideas?
The more familiar site for the tents was as shown below
These photos taken in July 1937 of the children heading up Mill Lane from the camp for their church parade, shows how many there were. I’m beginning to think that they were not all borstal boys in those days.

Sorry folks – my stupidity. I’d not noticed the Martello Tower which had blended into the background. Now the location is obvious. Here’s a detail of the image.
