In the Newsletter a year ago, Sandie Dixon told us of the Remount Depot finds in her garden, such as horseshoes. There must be many more discoveries to be made. Recently, while a garden fence was being installed in Binstead Close, the workers found what they think is a railway line. The plans of the Remount Depot do show a light railway network but this is the first evidence that it was built.
Unfortunately, there is a great lack of photographs and almost nothing appeared in the newspapers about the Remount Depot. This must be because of the secrecy imposed by an Order under the Defence of the Realm Regulations.

P.S. We still need financial contributions for the memorial sign. Email HCERA with your offer.
