Aldershot Military Museum in Aldershot Military Town in Hampshire was conceived by former Aldershot Garrison Commander, the late Brigadier John Reed (1926-1992). Reed believed that is was essential to preserve the history of the Military Town and established the Aldershot Military Historical Trust to raise funds for the establishment of the Museum. Reed acquired the two Victorian barrack bungalows in which the Museum is still based; these are the only two surviving barrack bungalows, built in the ‘North Camp’ area of Farnborough in the 1890s. The Museum was opened by HRH The Duke of Gloucester in 1984 and tells the story of the British Army in Aldershot, the ‘Home of the British Army’, from the Army's arrival in the area in the 1850s to the present day. It also acts as the local history Museum for the civil towns of Aldershot and Farnborough, which form the modern Borough of Rushmoor. (Source: Wikipedia).
Elles Barracks (previously Pinehurst Barracks) at Aldershot was originally a hutted camp situated next to the Royal Aircraft Establishment. It was occupied by the 2nd Battalion Royal Tanks Corps from 1921-1939. It also housed the Mechanical Warfare Experimental Establishment (MWEE), as well as the 4th Battalion Royal Tanks Corps from 1937-1939. The Royal Army Service Corps occupied the barracks following the Second World War, and the camp was demolished in the 1970s. (Source: Hants.gov.uk).
