Marchwood port for sale?

#1
I have read that marchwood is soon to be sold, could someone shed some light on this, for instance where will soldiers such as port operators be based?

In the officers' and sgts' messes?

Doubt it, it's been mooted that they may be moved to Liverpool or possibly Wales.
If these rumours are anything other than rumours then why not move them into Portsmouth or Devonport. With all the ships that are being sold off and scrapped there would be plenty of space for 17 P&M Regt.

As with everything in the hierarchy, logic is the last thing employed. :)

Still no word on the sale of the port, however, redundancies are expected in the next couple of tranches across all the trades resident in Marchwood (MEs, Mariners, Port ops etc) coupled with an ever decreasing fleet (down to 12 now) the future of the regiment let alone the port is far from bright.

Mind you, we had everyone from CDS down visiting last week, so there may be news soon.

With 4 high tides a day as opposed to the rest of the UK with 2, twice the amount of sailing time as well.
