Bassingbourn is very, very deppressing. An ex-Crab base in Cambridgeshire, it is now used for training some extremely chavvy junior entry crows and TA soldiers. The armourers and the caterers are generally useless. On a positive note the extremely funny drill instructor beasting scenes from Full Metal Jacket was filmed there. One of the actors found Bassingbourn so (very, very) depressing that he blew his swede off with his M14.
