    After spending many years as a child playing BB gun wars with my friends I recently re-visited Marchington Camp the barracks area for CVD Marchington.

    It appears the canteen area of the camp has since been demolished, which was built c1957, and disused by the RAOC since 1967, after which time it became a TA & Cadet Forces Training Camp till it closed c1990.

    CVD Marchington which had been in existence in some form or other since 1946 (started off in a muddy field containing war surplus vehicles) as 311 Veh Coy then 32 CVD before being renamed a Central Vehicle Depot (CVD) till it was decided to close CVD Marchington as a RAOC Depot in 1967. It was only ever used as a Vehicle Depot and other Ordnance Stores were not kept here.

    After 1967 the Vehicle Depot which is not far from the camp was taken over by the Home Office as a Storage Depot for among other things the Royal Observer Corps, and Special Vehicles Maintaince, most notably the 'Green Goodess' Fire Tender, Civil Defence Lorries & Landrovers. - The Depot is still in use as an Industrial Estate.

    I hope this thread proves enjoyable and of interest to some of the 28DL audience,
