Quote:
Aldershot Garrison, also known as Aldershot Military Town, is a major garrison in South East England, located between Aldershot and Farnborough in Hampshire. Established in 1854, Aldershot has long been seen as the home of the British Army.. In 1972, the garrison was the site of one of the worst UK mainland IRA attacks of the time when a car bomb was detonated outside the headquarters mess of 16 Parachute Brigade..The Official IRA claimed responsibility, stating that the attack was in revenge for the shootings in Derry that came to be known as Bloody Sunday...


Sabbath Bloody Sabbath ..

The Garrison area covers approximately 500 hectares.. The total garrison population is about 10,500.. Adjacent to the military town is some 2,700 hectares of open military training area.. Aldershot Garrison will serve as the hub for the future South East Super Garrison, which will include satellite establishments at Minley, Bordon, Sandhurst, Pirbright, Deepcut, Keogh, Arborfield, Winchester and Worthy Down..Minley is a village in the Hart District of Hampshire, England..In the Ecclesiastical Parish of Minley and the civil parish of Blackwater and Hawley.. It lies on the A327 road between the M3 and Yateley.. Its nearest town is Blackwater, approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) away from the village..Minley is included in the Domesday Book..Blackwater is twinned with:Sucy-en-Brie in France/Bietigheim-Bissingen in Germany..There are two suburban villages to the north, Frogmore and Darby Green, which are considered by Hart District council to be districts of Blackwater..

The garrison use to be the corps headquarters for the RCT and the ACC; when these were merged into the Royal Logistic Corps in 1993, the corps headquarters moved to Deepcut Barracks.. The garrison was also home to The Parachute Regiment from its formation in 1940 until the regiment moved to Colchester Garrison in 2003. Today, the garrison is home to the HQ of the Support Command of the British Army, and is also the administrative base for the 145th (South) Brigade and 101st Logistic Brigade.. The garrison plays host to around 70 military units and organisations..The Defence Dental Service (DDS) is a tri-service dental services provider to the British Armed Forces..27 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps (Travers Barracks)..This area is open to the public when not in use for military purposes...
