Wretham Camp

#4
Wretham has a NAAFI bar when the civvies can be arsed to open it. Accommodation is basic, mostly old nissan huts with around ten to a hut. No lockers either, unless you are in a 3/4 man half hut. The food there is okay. Don't know about training as that's up to your lot!

Quite a basic camp, Nissen huts and the like. Haven't been there for 11 years so can't comment on the food. The best thing about the place is the fact that you are right on the training area and STANTA is a pretty good area, not too hilly!

Food - BAD - last visit 2001 ish the kitchen staff were sacked due to bending a few food safety rules! revisitied in 2006 not much change.

Accom - Fair to bad

Local chicken battery provides delightful smell in addition to cadets when wind is blowing in the direction of camp

Naffi - good enough, TV seating area and decent shop plus vending out of hours.

trg area - very good.

Local pub- closed some time ago

yeah, the accomodation in shite in most of the blocks, the beer is over priced and the shop nearby does a very nice selection of cheap beer

Had to spend almost 2 months there on Pre deployment trg before Telic!


As said, accomidation is BASIC.

Naffi and training area quite good. STANTA should provide some different trg than the usual section attacks, just not sure how you could style a COIN exercise for cadets! :?

No where local that I was able to find for a drink!

Enjoy!

Was there in 2007. Camp is ok but basic. Food is the usual, unpredictable. Training areas are pretty good. NAAFI staff are not really fans of cadets. Well, they weren't then. Saying that, i liked the place. Much better than fecking Rollestone Camp, even if it did have a pitch and putt course.

blimey is that camp still there, thought they would have torn it down by now, was there in the eighties and it was a sh!thole then, nissan huts circa 1940 hot in summer freezing in winter, good training area though and who said frog hill was a hill! just a gentle stroll, is the 1940's bailley bridge still standing!!
