Vincent is a male name derived from Vincentius (from the present participle of the Latin verb vincere, "to conquer or win")...
Supply and repair of technical equipment, principally artillery and small arms, was the responsibility of the Master General of the Ordnance and the Board of Ordnance from the Middle Ages until they lost their independence in 1855.. Thereafter followed 30 years of fluctuating allocation of responsibilities and a great variety of titles of both corps and individuals..The first modern depot to store weapons was constructed alongside the Grand Union Canal at Weedon in 1808..After the Crimean War the main storage depot, and home of the RAOC and its predecessors, became the Red Fort at Woolwich... here's where we're bound for, hereabouts..Don't show properly whether there's mountains, swamp, or desert.. That shows the makers of the map themselves don't know for sure...
