Another metal plaque, this one reads:\n\nThe Iron Cohort was initally intended by Baker to be an indictment of World Wars One and Two, by way of illegally keeping several tons of iron from the Government war efforts and using them to create an entire company of soldiers dressed for war a hundred years before, in the 1840s.\n\nBaker's plan didn't really work out, since the warehouse he was hiding this work in was hit during The Blitz, and set on fire.
