Oh and as for whomever it was going on about the UK MOD HQ's being secret, look for Ben or olde salisbury etc... well that is absolute rubbish.
Anything I say from now on is not in violation of any secrecy laws that I may be bound by.
Stratsys-sws, it was me who alluded to MOD being secret etc. For God's sake, get a life mate. I was trying to be funny, like this........
Regarding RAF Northwood/HMS Warrior/MOD Northwood, it is indeedy above and below ground. Top ranking officers such as DLB are protected by the SAS/SBS
and others by the elite RMP's Close Protection Unit. So no mystery there!
To be really honest Stratsys-sws, if you knew where MOD was in Whitehall, why all the fuss asking where it was located?
Salisbury is just a training site, is it? News to me mate! SPTA is divided in three: WEST, CENTRAL and EAST and has always been a veritable hive of
Starting in the west, we have the Warminster Training Centre including the world famous Battlebury Bowl where the Sch of Inf conducts it's annual
To the east is the majority of the training area encompassing the following units and establishments:
Copehill Down Urban Warfare Training Centre with Fox covert DZ and the Royal School of Artillery;
At Netheravon, we have the Reconnaissance Wing and Support Weapons Wing of the old Sch of Inf and also the Parachute & Support Unit at Netheravon
Ranges are located at Warminster (inc SF Generals), Bulford and Perham Down;
Battle Camps are located at Upavon, Netheravon, New Zealand Farm, Westdown and Knook with low level Company urban facilities at Imber Village, Imber
Court and Beeches Barn.
As for Chally 2s crossing the road via Charlie Charlie, in 25 years, I have yet to see any tank using a tank crossing - anywhere!
For Olde Salisbury - read 'B' (RWY) Squadron, Royal Wessex Yeomanry, Old Sarum - read the former RAF Old Sarum. Right next door, used to be
Headquarters Land Command, now moved to where world famous carpets were manufactured - Wilton.
