Well, let's hope the finished article look a little more tasteful than the artist's impression. I'm vaguely hoping the artist did the picture as part of his/her art project in Year 3.

  From the experiences of family, older friends and neighbours, who passed through Catterick Camp, it is hard to imagine that any memorial can be other than a large number of stones all perfectly whitewashed.

I was thinking the same.

Is that railway engine a clone of "Thomas" in the background?

Looks a bit like him doesn't it.

Why Baden Powell?

The garrison was created by Baden Powell to train soldiers for the First World War.

"The garrison was created by Baden Powell to train soldiers for the First World War."

Why no cab on the railway engine?

Some only had canvas cabs but not the majority.

I presume Catterick has a significance to the railways too (should really look it up)

It had it's own railway branch line and station but apart from that I'm not sure if there was any railway connection (The railway line used to run right through the middle of the roundabout)

Image result for 851 lisset
