Aldershot, Cottage Hospital 1897 - a Memory of Aldershot.

It was only recently that my eldest daughter (17) asked where I was born, I told her of this place, she asked if the place still stands to which I told her no. She asked about the Cambridge Military Hospital and I told her all I know about the once majestic building, its role in history and its role in our family, she replied that it is a tragic waste of such a beautiful building. I left Aldershot in June 1988 to join the Royal Navy (enough army for me). Alas, after 23 years in the RN it is sad to see RNH Haslar go the same way as the Illustrious Cambridge, when will we learn, alas never. God Bless those all who served in such arduous conditions and made us all comfortable during crisis, LEGENDS All of you
