Shirehampton Remount Depot
The Shirehampton Remount Depot was a major supply base in WW1 for the war-trained horses needed in great numbers to replace those lost at the front. Here Professor Coates takes full advantage of the work done around 2014 to restore the history of the Depot; and quotes copiously from the contemporary press, to give a full picture of the depot in operation and in dissolution.
