    Just wondered if anyone can post any pre WW2/ WW1 photos of long demolished camps.

    I was thinking the old barracks of Aldershot etc.

    If you look at Alan Mallinson's Light Dragoons, you find a picture of 19th Hussars parading at Aliwal Barracks, Tidworth before their Colonel in Chief in August 1914 prior to sailing for France.

    Actually it doesn't give you much cos when 15/19th Hussars were stationed at Aliwal Barracks, Tidworth in 1976-77 I don't think it had even had a lick of paint, so the pre-Great War pic is identical to any Cold War pic I might have had if my entire photo collection had not been lost.
