In August 2019 a training room at the base of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment was dedicated to the school. It is a room all soldiers of the regiment will use and will cement the bond Beatrix Potter has with the Regiment from this moment on.
Here two news items highlight this very real honour.
- This first item does include at the start an advert and then the report start
- Our second link has both the report on the room but also includes links to other stories around BP’s links.

Whilst at the base we also presented Bertha’s great niece with new information the children had discovered, in this photo Berha is with her fello VAD’s who arrived together including Francis Cluett whose diary became the history of Newfoundland VAD’s
Our initial photos of the boards to go in the room. Three of Bertha’s (The Nurse) relatives were able to attend the event. More photos will follow.
