HISTORY lovers travelled by double-decker London bus to an exhibition launch celebrating 100 years since the opening of Catterick Garrison camp.
Ticket-holders left Yorkshire County Records Office in Northallerton for Catterick library to attend a talk and historical exhibition organised by Garrison Voices History Project, funded by the Ministry of Defence Community Covenant Fund.

Vintage vehicles were also displayed.
Keith Sweetmore, record office manager, said: “There are many veterans and older people who show interest in these events.
“We want reach the widest audience we can of people interested in the history of the Catterick Camp.”
Monthly talks are held at the Northallerton Record Office on Fridays.
