    What role will this place have? What courses will it take on?
  2. From the web site:

    The Academy will provide technical training to all the armed services - the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. The areas of specialist training include three engineering disciplines (aeronautical, electro-mechanical and communications / IT), logistics training, languages, intelligence and photography. Servicemen and women will come to the Academy once they have successfully completed their basic training. The Academy will also provide career development courses and 'refresher' courses for all three services.

    Thanks - didn't see this bit

    So does this mean the end of the Defense Language School in Beaconsfield?

    What other establishments will be run down once this place opens?
  4. Food for thought isn't it - how will Arborfield, Deepcut, Borden & Chicksands fair?

    Sold off for property development ? ? ? ? ? ?
  5. Not forgetting Blandford - and the speculation is already rife on this camp!
  6. And what of the Defence Academy at Watchfield? Nevermind Shrivenham?????

    Still I am sure that southern Wales will be much better than Swindon!!!
  7. How true - all the delights of the funfair at Barry Island :relax:
  8. Just heard on local news that St Athan has got the decision.
  9. Confirmed by just hearing the actual decision read by Des Brown.
