    Bushfield Camp was an army training camp functioning during WW2.

    During the Second World War an airstrip (built by the US Army) was constructed around about the time of D-Day near the camp.

    It was used to train recruits to the Green Jackets Brigade between 1961-64, and it was also used to train National Servicemen in the 1950s who subsequently went to Malaya or Germany. The site may have been used by Composite Signals Organisation (GCHQ) staff during the 1970’s who used Bushfield as a billet. The staff were based at the Listening Station at Flowerdown near Winchester.

    A few bits and pieces are still there including the remains of the motor transport garages, the parade ground, blast Pens, camp armoury including cages, and a firing range still showing the bullet holes in the brick work.
