It's October 17th and being a worldwide day of remembrance and an international holiday I had the day off work like everyone else. Before setting off uphill to drop off flowers I cycled along the riverside pathway and detoured to take some photos at the gate. The excavator operator walking away in this pic had just showed me a vintage black and white photo on his phone of the road leading off this site here that he had found online. It was what looked like an early 20th century era image of a small locomotive pulling a series of flatcars loaded with tanks. He said the narrow guage rails they were travelling on were still in place but had been tarmac'd over. I knew 2700 aircraft had been built here during WWI but I didn't know tanks had ever been made here.
