Mornington Crescent - Military

To avoid disconcerting moderators etc., the recent flurryu of that popular Radio 4 Panel Game "Mornington Crescent" moves here ...

The normal rules apply with the following modifications:

a. Each station must be justified by an appropriate military cross-reference.
b. Belch's Reverse Ploy is disallowed.
c. Gomes' Transition is only permitted if the applicable to the same campaign.

We start at [where else]

Military Billet during WW2

The British Infantry Square was originally oval.
Subsequently, Drill Sgts were invented to make the shape neater and enable people standing at the corners to be attacked from both sides at once.

Unfortunately Mornington Crescent doesn't have any connections therefore there can be no winner
Course there is:

1. Used as a bomb shelter during WWII

2. It was named after the Earl of Mornington, brother of the Duke of Wellington.
In that case using Pagnels outrageous liberty clause I shall play GOSPEL OAK

Which was possibly bombed during WW2

Damn those Germans
