Went for a look around with sentinel (who has a report, too) and The Raw.

Got into the Maternity ‘Louise Margaret’ wing, where myself and my sister were born, and my Auntie had worked.

After this area we got rumbled by security whilst checking out the Mortuary. There were also Dog Handlers snooping around, and we’d heard a little barking earlier. Still a great visit nonetheless! :thumb

Brief History on the site (mostly pinched from sentinels post)...
The Cambridge Military Hospital (CMH) was the fifth military hospital built in Aldershot.
The first patients were admitted 18 July 1879. They either walked or were taken by cart ambulance from the Connaught Hospital.
The title had nothing to do with the Cambridge area but came from His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge who was the Commander-in-Chief of the Army at the time. The Duke of Cambridge opened the CMH Aldershot in July 1879.
It was built on a hill because thinking at the time was that the wind would sweep away any infection and clean the air.
The hospital soon became a fully functioning hospital and was the first in the UK to receive battle casualties directly from the front of World War One.
It was closed in February 1996 owing mostly to high costs and maintenance.
