Duchess of Kent Barracks

Date of construction 1969

The Duchess of Kent Barracks were named after the Women's Royal Army Corps Controller Commandant, HRH the Duchess of Kent, who officially opened the barracks on 11 July 1969.

Built as part of the new military town of Aldershot and designed by the Aldershot Planning Group, the Duchess of Kent Barracks brought together the instructors, drivers, clerks and telephone operators of the Women's Royal Army Corps (WRAC) who had previously been scattered across the garrison.

There was accommodation to house 600 women from the Women's Royal Army Corps (WRAC).

Still in use.
