I can only really comment about my own experiences of Army " accommodation ", a case of swings and roundabouts.
The ' spider blocks ' of Weeton Camp were certainly an eye opener during that dreadful winter of 1966 / 67. The only heating in our wooden " hut " was a pot bellied coke burner in the middle of the room with a very limited supply of coke to burn. Apart from the hut that burnt down in supposedly mysterious circumstances...another nearby ' vacant ' hut had it's interior systematically dismantled and disposed of through the pot bellied stove! LOL.
Our first ever married quarter in North Camp Aldershot was in fact a converted former stable once part of the Royal Artillery Barracks. Grant Square and Somerset Square were dreadful. From there we moved into a brand new ground floor flat in Ramalies Park ....sheer luxury in truth. I recall vividly the local QM and the March in / March out of married quarters. Everything you could conceivably need was supplied on the inventory. I wonder if that is still the case today? When I left the Army my March Out bill was for two brooms, a couple of bits of crockery and the re paint of a scuffed wall. Happy days of long ago for a recently married couple.
