Jubilee Class loco. which had me reaching for the history books in my youth was this, 45683 Hogue named after a battle in 1692 at La Hogue in France when a British fleet defeated the French. Associated with this was the Battle of Barfleur which another Jubilee commemorated.

Love the little steam driven wheelie barrow too Paul. So cute. Seems to have come off the rails though.
Does it have a name i wonder. Patently not Barfleur.
