W. Metcalfe, Shute Road, Catterick Camp

Once upon a time in Arcadia, and particularly on a Thursday, soldiers posted at Catterick Camp in region known as the North might take a brief hour to call in at W. Metcalfe on Shute Road, 'Practical Angler ' and 'Sports Outfitter'.  There, the soldier might avail themselves of the 'Special Army Terms for Sports Gear' and spend their meagre wages on a 'requisite for the sportsman'.

Should you find yourself with a brief hour on a Thursday but feel that Catterick is too far a march away even at a good pace with 'Boots' on your lips then perish not.  You may visit me at my stall in Spitalfields Antiques Market where Camp Rules apply and where 'Special Army Terms for Sports Gear' are offered to all those who have or who are still serving.  Carry on.
