If you look on Google Maps it's still there.

 

The last time I looked (Just For Fun) it looked like military vehicles on one edge of the square. ??

L/Rovers?

I did my driving course out of Chelsea in mid 60s in Austin Champs and the Bn received Land Rovers shortly afterwards. 💂

OK 51 you may be right but I definitely know that I did my driving course in Chelsea and we used Champ's. LR's came along later.😀💂

I was in the MT in Gort and we had L/Rovers then and before that as well, I was on the advance party from Gort to Chelsea and we were driving Land Rovers, haven't seen a Champ since we were in Pirbright in the Fifties ?
