Not in London, but close enough to peek my interest at least, and looks interesting in several areas… the Army’s Officer training academy in Sandhurt is having an open day next month – and conveniently on a Sunday.
Not just for the displays of military prowess, but the architecture and heritage is rather impressive.
To give it a dose of London relevance though, Sandhurst was formed from the merger of the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich and the Royal Military College at Sandhurst.
Hopefully, any helicopters that might be there wont scare the locals as the recent open evening at the H.A.C. did to Shoreditch residents who didn’t realise there was an Army barracks in their midst!
