Came across this accidentally.

History (http://www.history.petop.co.uk/html/depot.html) Location (http://wtp2.appspot.com/wheresthepath.htm?lat=50.83807099922963&lon=-1.8733068245678142&gz=15&oz=6&gt=1)

The road through the site is Jimmy Brown Avenue. Ideas?

Although I have WTP open in another 'window' your location link will not work for me; also West Moor does not appear on the Dorset list of SSI so give me a clue, what's the nearest town? Is it Winterbourne Kingston?


Oh, I see. It was actually a test:). It is West Moors, Wimborne, Dorset.

I think that Jimmy Brown was an African-American serving with the US Army at this Depot during WW2 but can't find why he is commemorated here.
