Brompton Barracks were built in 1804-06, originally for
artillerymen, and became the headquarters of the Royal Engineers
when the School of Military Engineering was founded there in
1812. Although wholly in Gillingham, it was known as the Chatham
School until 1962, when Queen Elizabeth II granted it the 'Royal'
title. In this picture, the men on parade wear the uniform of the
period, complete with spiked helmet, and the horse-drawn vehicle
standing beside the post box, outside the pillared portico, may await
an officer leaving the building.
