Shorncliffe camp

#1
I've been hearing on the rumour mill that the Gurkha's are moving out of Shorncliffe. Is it true and if so when ?
 
#2
Are you a greengrocer?
 
#3
No not that I know of
 
#4
If that was the case it would be all over the local rags. It isn't so I suspect they're not. However, some REMFS are losing their jobs as BDE HQ is being moved to Salisbury.
 
#5
Aaah 2 brigade HQ are going
 
#6
Heard it again from an other source today that 1 rgr are going.

Nope, some parts of what used to be Napier and Risborough Barracks have been sold to developers. Sir John Moore Barracks is going to be smaller and more secure. They also intend to build a Cadet Centre. Jonnie Gurkha is staying put.

The reason I keep going on about it is I'm joining the MPGS and working at shorncliffe would be ideal.

Coops,

I live in the area and if the RGR left (and were not replaced) it would have a major impact on the local economy and it would be headlines in all the local papers. Should this actually happen I will be the first to let you know!
 
#11
Cool I'll be moving down that way soon any way.
 
#12
No

UKTAP,

Could you bung up a brief synopsis please?

I have no evidence of this so don't quote me but I suspect it will be a Gurkha Cadet Unit.

Is Shorncliffe a potential site for them? As its not part of their current or forthcoming orbat.

I work now and again with some mpgs down at Lydd and they say that there are places opening up down there, but how true this is I don't know.
