Either a random old building which will be retained by the army for countless years, or a shiny new purpose built place which is about to be sold off.

Looks almost deserted. The odd car and an old bloke in jungle boots and a '58 pattern belt are occasionally spotted.

That is until, a Tuesday (sometimes Wednesday) night and most weekends. Young, motivated, efficient and organised TA soldiers will be accomplishing almost everything the Regular Army does.

It may appear that we are turning up late, half dressed, un-shaven, dropping kit everywhere with some people doing the same job eight times and other jobs being forgotton completely. We did mean to load the kit onto one truck, re-load it onto another and then transfer it back to the original truck, while that fat bloke shouted at us. Thus accomplishing everything the Regular Army does.
