Remembered Today:

Dover Broadlees Bottom barracks and hut


Recommended Posts

Hi all

It has been posted here a couple of times in the past about the various huts and encampments that were once on the site of the 1909 Bleriot landing ground - Northfall Meadow/Broadlees Bottom in Dover

Other than various remains of hut foundations and rubbish pits there are some 'huts' that seem to have appeared in the 1930s that housed a number of Majors and Captains, and what I assume is the Dover Garrison Chaplain.

The remaining ones are called Messines, Aisne and Marne. Ypres now rebuilt. I think bombed in WW2 was Mons, and further up the road were Arras, Ancre, Somme and Hooge.

It is a long shot, but do these combination of WW1 battle sites sites perhaps tie up with the actions of a certain regiment (Connaught?) or do people think they are just randomly named ?
