Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. When in 1976 did MCTC Stonecutters close? Cheers all

    There's a recent thread (in Old'n'Bold IIRC) suggesting Stonecutters closed in 1973. As somebody earmarked for a Recce tour in 1976 only for the tour to be pulled from the Arms Plot, my interest in HK has always been sadly muted.
  3. I remember visiting the island as a brat in 1977, only thing I remember about the place then was the salt water swimming pool, the snake farm and the Ammo Depot. Don't remember any mention of MCTC there.

    I do remember the Sikh Ammo Depot Police on the island and Depot HKMSC being there.

    As a matter of interest, the island itself has ceased to exist, having now been joined to the mainland - Kowloon - by land reclamation. :(
