"1.2 Otley and the First Churchill Tanks
In May 1941 the 9th left Gateshead - ...... - and moved to Farnley Park, Otley, Yorkshire. .......... It was undoubtedly the nearby moors that made Otley so attractive to the War Office, either with a beret or without. By this time all ranks had had their basic and technical training, and had been grouped into squadrons, troops, and supporting echelons. They were now ready to train on the tanks in which they would fight."
