A TIME OF CHANGE

However, in the 1930's the British Army, like the armies of other nations, was making the painful transition from animal transport to mechanical transport. The procedure was known as 'Mechanisation'. In ten years prior to World War 2 the British Army underwent the change from a service almost totally dependent on the horse for battlefield mobility to one totally committed to mechanical transport.

The site was still used during the Second World War but the need for horse management diminished dramatically with the development and use of 4 Wheel Drive vehicles such as 'Wilys Jeep'.
