http://www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/DefenceNews/EstateAndEnvironment/SoldiersReturnFromGermanyToBrandNewBarracks.htm It's interesting to keep reading how great SLAM is and the millions spent so far. Can't say I've seen many stories on there about the barracks where it's not coming to anytime soon. Take a certain ammunition depot, the largest the country/europe, tucked away in Warickshire. SLAM is not coming here for at least another 4 years and due to the fact that it is coming soon no money will be spent on refurb of the accommodation or messes. The Sgt's mess for example is antiquated, the rooms have old fittings, cracks in the walls, peeling paint, mouldy showers, are badly insulated, poor heating, subsidence on some walls. Repairs are done as and when with minimal spend. Money has been spent on the public rooms due to needing a new ceiling and refurb of the bar was done on a self help basis by mess members. The soldiers accommodation is in a better condition but not that much. Any other camps in a smiliar predicament?
