I think the only secret bases we have try to figure out how to make the British Military fight in second hand hand me downs from a charity shop. Don't kid yourselves we have secret bases making Star War weapons , hell in the 1940 ies the Home Guard had wooden guns. Thats Britain today good soldiers but crap equipment. We spend less on our Military than we do on scroungers who cheat the benefit system.

i live near the bently priory one and the northwood base. All i will say about the Northwood (NATO) one is that there is always at least 1 soldier with some sorta machine gun at the gates, i think they have tennis courts!! The entrance is on a main road, where every1 commutin through early in the morning is likely to have to wait in sloooow moving traffic, and get plenty of time to stare at the base. Never thought about seeing if the soldiers go to any of the local pubs, although i doubt they would talk about the underground levels even if really drunk.
I wish we could look inside every single base"!!!! the suspense about what is really goin on is too much to bear.lol

My Uncle claims to have been posted as a guard to a secret RAF listening post under the downs near to Beach Head, East Sussex. He claimed it was built early in WW2 and was then used as a a radar centre in the cold war.

There's no great mystery about QinetiQ either, it's simply a semi-privatised version of of the government agency formally known as DERA.
Loads of info here: en.wikipedia.org...
Hardly a front company when it's all freely available information..

Yeah, when DERA was split the larger part became QinetiQ in which the MoD has majority shares and Dstl - purely MoD run for all the nasties, Bio tech/Top secret projects etc.

Suprised "Ouston" is not up there. It has a huge underground complex that has trucks carrying warheads that dissapear into the labrynth underground never to re surface.
Its a old RAF place that was recently a infantary training camp
