Beech Hill Primary School

Today Beech Hill is a large multi cultural school serving approximately 750 pupils, it is popular and located near Luton town centre.

In WW1 it was used to house troops billeted in the local area. There are written reports of men from the North Midlands Division being billeted on and around the streets of Bury Park, as well as photographs of men outside these houses in uniform.

Beech Hill Primary appears to have been home to a cadre of men from the Royal Army Medical Corps, as seen on the photograph above.
