The British Empire and its effect on Plymouth

Eggbuckland Segregation Camp

Segregation Camps were established in ports to accept groups who 'may' have been considered infectious. Troops from all over the British Empire arrived in Plymouth during World War One, if any unit had people suffering from disease, they would be escorted directly from their ship to Eggbuckland Keep where they could receive medical care or be kept under observation until the authorities were confident that they were all clear.
