21 Engineer Regiment RE is a regiment of the British Army's Royal Engineers.. It is based at Claro Barracks, Ripon, Catterick Garrison in Yorkshire..The siting of the garrison was first recommended by Robert Baden-Powell who founded the Scouting movement in 1908 whilst he, as Inspector-General of Cavalry, was based at the army barracks, at that time located in Richmond Castle..On 12 August 1914, the order was issued for the construction of the camp, following the outbreak of the Great War..After serving as a prisoner of war camp at the end of the Great War, the idea to make Catterick a impermanent military barracks was first suggested after the partitioning of Ireland in 1921, the required land was purchased and building plans were put forward in 1923 - Construction was undertaken by John Laing & Son and by the mid-1930s most of the camp's facilities were complete.. During the Second World War the camp was once again used to house POW..Catterick Garrison was once home to one Yorkshire's largest cinemas, the "Ritz Cinema" was opened on 21 December 1940 and had over 1000 seats..Duchess of Kent Hospital is the local military hospital & medical centre that was opened on 6 October 1976..Lacking a true "town centre," the Garrison gained its first large supermarket, a Tesco store, in 2000; along with a retail park known as "Richmondshire Walk", which also includes a McDonald's, a Poundstretcher and a Peacocks...The three garrison churches are dedicated to St. Joan of Arc, St Aidan, and the Garrison Memorial Church of St Martin & St Oswald..St John's Churchyard, which now contains the war graves of 64 Commonwealth service personnel of the First World War and 2 of the Second World War..That's all I can remember, mum, but if I think of any more, I will let you know... collect church collapses, recreationally..Did you see the recent one in Sicily?. Marvelous!..He knew that a middle-aged man can be so desperate for wisdom he may try to make some up, and how deadly that can be to a youngster who believes him..Oh wrangling schools, that search what fire..In the vaults of our hearts and brains, danger waits...
