Good old Templar Barracks. This thread is evergreen :O)
It's all been moved to RAF Chicksands, along with most of the Navy and RAF elements of the wide and fascinating intelligence trade.
UK's Area 51? hahahahah.
Bunker complex? hahahahah.
Burnt-out, psychotic training-wing staff? Now we're talking ;O)
Retired Special Branch coppers sat behind their newspapers in the pubs, spying on the trainees? Absolutely.
I found/recruited their first black-hat hacker, when the IT security section was 3-man strong and clueless.
Random fact... In the officers-mess main staircase there was a large full-body portrait of Enoch Powell. At least, that is what was explained to me
as a peered at it whilst on perimeter-checks one night. Mind you, on looking at photos of Field Marshal Templer, for whom the barracks were named, I
could have had my leg pulled.
The Snot-Hats had a twisted sense of humour...
