ⓘ Aldershot Garrison

Aldershot Garrison, also known as Aldershot Military Town, is a major garrison in South East England, located between Aldershot and Farnborough in Hampshire. Established in 1854, Aldershot is the home of the British Army although smaller than in previous years. The garrison was established when the War Department bought a large area of land near to the village of Aldershot, with the objective of establishing a permanent training camp for the British Army. Over time, this camp grew into a military town and continues to be used by the Army to the present day. It is home to the headquarters of the Armys Support Command, and it is also the administrative base for the 101st Logistic Brigade. The garrison plays host to around 70 military units and organisations.

In 1972 the garrison was the site of one of the worst attacks in the UK mainland by the Ira at a time when a car bomb exploded outside the headquarters mess of 16 parachute brigade. The official Ira claimed responsibility, saying the attack was revenge for the shooting in Derry, which became known as Bloody Sunday. At the time of the attack, Aldershot garrison was an entirely open garrison. After the attack the army took steps to ensure the garrison in the construction of safety fences around most of the barracks and lines, as well as the introduction of armed patrols.

The garrison area is about 500 hectares. The total number of the garrison is approximately 10.500. Near the military town is some 2.700 hectares of open military training facility. Aldershot garrison will serve as a hub for the future South East super garrison, which will include satellite establishments at Minley, Bordon, Sandhurst, Pirbright, Deepcut, Keogh, Arborfield, Winchester and worthy down.
