This is a personal memento to mark splitting up of the group when the camp disbanded. It was a private social group for the four men who were amateur antiquarians and would go walking in the countryside exploring archaeological sites.

A. Knox would be Archibald Knox, Camp Censor. F. Minay would be Frank Minay, camp plumber, water engineer. R. Harrison was possibly the donor's father.
