The local news in Aldershot have been spreading the rumour that the Bomb Memorial will have to move when the new housing estate, planned for Montgomery Lines is built! In 1972 the IRA bombed 16 Para Bde Officers Mess killing an Army Chaplain & 6 civilian workers at the mess. The Officers mess was demolished years ago & a memorial to those who died that day was erected on the site. The site now belongs to Defense Estates & access is strictly controlled by having to phone up prior to visiting. Not very satisfactory really, seeing as the camp is now boarded up until it's sold! The memorial site has been there for many years now & it would be an insult to those that died to move it so that a block of flats could be built there! There is a facebook page dedicated to this subject, "Friends of the Aldershot Bomb Memorial"
