What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Colin (9th Feb 2021 11:53:09)

Hi,

Does anyone know what the large concrete structures are in the flat area of Longmoor camp adjacent to the A3?

They were constructed last year but appear to be empty.

Could they be for storing rainwater? Or ammunition?

Here's the location:

w3w.co/require.purchaser.droplet

BTW, Did this area used to be a runway?

- Simon Coyte (9th Feb 2021 13:01:02)

This area used to be sidings and in the sixties or seventies was cleared to create an air strip with a view to enable parachute training in the conford enclosure.
This never came to fruition but I believe there were a few flights by Short Skyvans.
Now used regularly as a training area for Chinooks transporting supplies to forward base.
Are the concrete structures buildings or just pads ?

Simon

The structures are 5-6 concrete-walled 'suares'. 3 of these are joined together. Another 2 are set slightly away form the 3. The satellite view on the map link (in original post) is a shots of them being constructed.

The concrete walls are ~2m high and don't have a roof.

I haven't looked inside them (over the walls) but, from a distance, they appear to be empty - hence why I'm puzzled as to what their intended use is for.

- Paul (12th Feb 2021 15:46:08)

Not entirely certain, but this looks to be the area where grit and sand for roads is often stored? I've often seen gritting trucks loading in that area (when I used to leave the house that is!).

There's something similar close to Woking train station:

They are flexible Tank Fuel Bladders for Army use during exercises.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Colin (15th Feb 2021 10:02:33)

@Jo W
Thanks! That looks spot on. Googled the bladders and looks like the concrete structures are the base to contain the flexible bladders inside.

Thanks very much!

It is not going to worry anyone unduly. The threat comes from losing our allies in Europe since Brexit. Plus we now have a very depleted Navy Airforce etc. An attack which would really cripple us would be a cyber invasion. We need to make peace in the world.

- Me (17th Feb 2021 14:27:04)

Judy have you seen the grumblings going on in France . It seems the french people want Macron out because they want to leave the EU fed up with Brussels red tape. They think what we have done is the way to go. We have still got very good relations with Europe it is just a one or two like macron who are trying to disrupt and put the boot in all the time. The EU will fold if they carry on like they are.GREAT BRITAIN are showing them the way several other countries are thinking the same.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Sam (17th Feb 2021 19:22:17)

Dear Me,

The only thing online carrying that French story is the express, and the express isnt "News" its a comic for bigots.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Judy (17th Feb 2021 20:17:56)

You could be right about the EU but we now cannot have the same access to intelligence sharing as we did when we were members.
With regard to the IRA the Americans funded them. Now that Northern Ireland have their own Parliament hopefully things will not go that way again.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Me (18th Feb 2021 10:06:48)

Sorry to disappoint you Sam I have never read the express . My information came from our very good french friends in France they tell us of the growing unrest about macron. So you could say from the horses mouth. Looking at all that’s going on I think the people that voted to leave the EU are proving to be right and as that was the MAJORITY we need to abide by it and get on with our life’s. Judy I don’t think I said anything about IRA but you are probably right about the Americans they get in every where. But all in all we must pull together and get back on our feet.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Penny Williamson (18th Feb 2021 12:49:42)

Extraordinary how the Remainers have hijacked this Thread which was about structures at the Longmoor Camp. It has been dragged into the old and frankly very boring argument about the pros and cons of leaving the EU. I will say just one thing – we would not have had the advanced, efficient and comprehensive vaccination program if we had remained in the EU.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Judy (18th Feb 2021 20:24:28)

Just as well we did order in the vaccines in advance, the UK has the highest per capita death rate from covid in the world.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Sam (18th Feb 2021 22:19:15)

Penny, the UK have FULLY vaccinated almost the same amount of people most of the EU countries have. Giving people one dose isn’t FULLY vaccinating anyone.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Leaver (19th Feb 2021 11:04:08)

Sam & Judy you are in the minority just get used to it We have LEFT The EU . Onward and Upwards.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Penny Williamson (19th Feb 2021 14:53:06)

Sam Where in my post did I say that the UK or anyone else had fully vaccinated people? I said that we had a very comprehensive and efficient vaccination programme and if we had remained in the EU we would not have been able to give our citizens as many first doses of the vaccine as we have to date. The Commission wanted to order the vaccine centrally and so countries in the EU were not able to order their own vaccines independently. If we had still been part of the EU we too would have been prevented from organising our own supply of the vaccines. The UK has given more people the first dose of the vaccine than any other country in the world, except for I believe, Israel.

Judy Stats can be proved to be inaccurate at a later date and they change all the time. I think when this terrible disease is under some sort of control, these figures here in the UK and globally will be pored over, discussed and analysed endlessly. I have always had a problem with the phrase that “xxx number of deaths occurred in people who had had a positive test result for Covid and died within 28 days of the first positive test.” I know for a fact that a friend of mine’s husband was suffering from terminal cancer and had a few weeks to live. He was admitted to hospital, caught Covid and died. Guess what cause of death on the death certificate was Covid. There was another case, admittedly on social media so must always be taken with a pinch of salt, of a lady who caught Covid and recovered but was involved in a car crash within 28 days of the test, which resulted in her death. Death Certificate said she had died of Covid. You say we have the highest death rate in the world. How on earth do you know that – no one with any intelligence can believe what comes out of China and Russia to quote but two dictatorships and what about countries like Yemin where they are shooting children. Do you really think they are monitoring numbers of Covid deaths? I don’t think so. Bottom line, I think we in the UK are basically pretty open and honest – not perfect but so much better than many, many other countries – so stop running our Country down and as Leaver said “get over it”. We are out of the EU.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Bernard (19th Feb 2021 15:42:23)

What a sad turn this straightforward thread has taken. It did amuse me to read down the thread to see the flag-waving post at the end. Not much has changed since I last contributed to Talkback.

"I think we in the UK....... so much better than many, many other countries". Oh please. OK, we are not ruled by a military junta and I love the UK, but our government is awful. I am pleased and give credit for our vaccine rollout, but - an island nation with 112,000 deaths - the dither over lockdowns, borders, kids in schools on 4th January, contracts to Tory chums etc. Incidentally Penny, as a member of the EU, the UK would have been free to follow our own vaccination policy - no members were obligated to follow the troubled, centralised system. The current leadership of the EU is not great, but neither is ours.

I run a business that, as services company, has had to relinquish its business with customers in the EU. If you read the right newspapers you will see the harm done to so many businesses, the jobs and tax revenues affected and the reluctance of firms in Europe to deal with UK businesses and individuals due to the cost and bureaucracy involved. In July it is set to get even worse when the delayed implementation of full customs declarations starts. Still waiting to see the golden Brexit uplands. I know I will be waiting a very long time. Have yet to see a single upside. I see the advice is still to 'get over it'. I guess I have no choice - doesn't mean it wasn't a silly decision though.

Not sure what the concrete structures are.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Penny Williamson (19th Feb 2021 17:12:49)

Depends on what you read, to whom you listen and what you believe Bernard. I am only quoting what I was told on many occasions that the individual member states of the EU had collectively agreed on the advice of the Commission that the Commission would order the vaccines and not individual countries.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Jacob (19th Feb 2021 17:57:09)

Penny, can you show me the link to this? I think you find each government had the right to decide regarding the vaccine.

It wasn't compulsory Penny. All member states were free to choose their course.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- passfield resident (19th Feb 2021 21:03:00)

It's remarkable how many pro-Brexit posters fail to give convincing arguments as to why we are better off after Brexit. There just seems to be a general vague feeling that we are free to do all sorts of things we couldn't do before. However, the majority of business leaders and business forums were in favour of staying in. Also, there's no getting away from the fact that it wouldn't have happened without UKIP, a nasty, politically opportunistic party with proven links to even nastier , openly racist groups. Without the anti- immigration feeling stirred up in the period before the vote, we would have stayed in. I'm all for our parliament being in control of our laws, and for limiting immigration, but I think for many people that wasn't why they wanted to leave. There's a clear tendency towards us becoming a more blinkered, selfish, intolerant society. Before some idiot posts telling me to go and live somewhere else, the answer is that but for family commitments I would go and live in Scotland, which in a few years will be independent and back in the EU. There's another thought to get some of you going.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Penny Williamson (19th Feb 2021 21:48:16)

Look it up for yourself

"Less than two hours before Kautz's statement, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen confirmed that countries cannot sign separate deals.

“It’s legally binding,” she said. “We have all agreed, legally binding, that there will be no parallel negotiations, no parallel contracts … We’re all working together.”

I am not making it up

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Bernard (20th Feb 2021 09:14:45)

"Member states do not have to join the scheme, but all 27 EU countries chose to do so.

They are still allowed to make separate deals with vaccine makers with which the EU does not have an agreement. Hungary has agreed to buy two million doses of the Russian Sputnik-V vaccine"

BBC News, 12th February

Penny, I suspect your quote applied after states had signed-up. I don't know, I don't read the Telegraph.

Just what more is there to say about concrete structures at Longmoor camp? It was not long before someone in Dads Army posted about not spilling those hush hush 2nd world war military secrets. Those awful Germans might invade!

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Penny Williamson (20th Feb 2021 10:11:06)

Apologies Simon. I like you do not believe in hi-jacking Threads, but Judy started this in her post on 17 January, followed by Sam, Jacob and Bernard I just cannot let these ill informed people who appear, by the content of their posts to be Remainers, talk such rubbish. As always the devil is in the detail as is demonstrated by Bernard’s last post and I quote: “They are still allowed to make separate deals with vaccine makers with which the EU does not have an agreement. Hungary has agreed to buy two million doses of the Russian Sputnik-V vaccine" Yes the 27 EU member states did agree to sign up for a deal with the commission possibly under duress and yes if we had still been part of the EU we would have been able to order vaccines but only from vaccine makers with whom the EU does not have an agreement so we would not have been able to order the Astrazeneca and Pfizer vaccines. Your statement that “Penny, I suspect your quote applied after states had signed-up. I don't know, I don't read the Telegraph.” appears to be that implying I do read the Telegraph. If you are, then you are making, as so many posters do on this site do, an inaccurate and in this case irrelevant assumption. FYI I do not read the Telegraph. Would it make any difference to the discussion if I did?

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- judy (20th Feb 2021 11:53:14)

I agree Penny I did use your trigger word Brexit but only in the context of military matters. It was you who hi jacked the thread into your opinions on covid vaccinations.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Sadly (20th Feb 2021 11:57:43)

Yes Simon boring. But unfortunately if you start a new thread the remainers will jump straight in with their very venomous thoughts. Such a shame that we have people that are so dissatisfied with our lovely country fortunately they are in the minority. I for one love my country could not live anywhere else and work my socks for it. If you look at the world there are problems everywhere Europe as well nothing new. We have a great country we now have control back from Brussels let’s get on and make it work. If the EU don’t want to play ball and sulk then we must rise above it it’s there loss they export a great deal to the UK and it will hit them hard. The reason that we left the EU was to take back control of our country in other words run our country how we want to Not be governed by EUROPE in history many countries have tried not least the mad man hitler to rule us but have failed. The original deal the common market was a good idea that’s what we wanted to do trade with everyone in a good way Not to be governed by someone else.I’m sorry that some business are suffering but I think that’s down to the stubbornness of the EU imposing unnecessary red tape trying to disrupt our exports. Sorry for the long post but I love my country couldn’t live anywhere else.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Penny Williamson (20th Feb 2021 12:41:04)

Sadly Well Said
Judy It doesn’t matter what the reason is for hi-jacking this Thread, so please don’t split hairs. Your post prompted several of other posts before mine and as I said the only reason I eventually posted was because of the inaccurate rubbish some of the remainers post. We are still friends with the people of the countries in the EU. It is the Commission that most Brexiters detest. Unelected, undemocratic and unaccountable. They are extravagant to the point of being criminal hemorrhaging money – one example of this is the fact that they move the European Parliament from Brussells to Strasbourg once every month costing and this varies depending on what you read from 114 million euros to 180 million euros a year. Madness. The UK are well out it and I don’t think we will be the last to leave. Other countries in the EU are very restive, particularly France.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Bernard (20th Feb 2021 14:32:00)

Penny, I didn't post until I read you had said. I find your last post here depressing. When your argument is simply calling other people's views 'rubbish' then there is little point continuing. Remainers are not stupid; in fact, remainers are usually well-read and educated. We are just everyday people with genuine concerns for our businesses, jobs, economy, national security and national prestige. I used to engage with you on this subject because I felt that we both did so intelligently. I have been with you on your responses on threads relating to COVID. Sadly, your last two posts on this thread are just UKIP-syle flag-waving. You were wrong about EU vaccine policy and we would not have been obliged to join-in had we not left the EU. The fact that the other 27 wanted to would not have been a barrier to us doing our own thing. It is OK to be wrong about some things. Your unpleasant comment that those who disagree with you are talking "inaccurate rubbish" undermines your points. Agreeing with Sadly that 'remainers' (ie people who disagree with you) have 'venomous thoughts' really shows how poorly-argued the Brexit view is. I'm fairly sure my thoughts are not venomous. I really wish people would read more widely.

I accept that we are where we are, even though nothing that has happened has convinced me that there was any merit in it. I don't understand why Brexiteers behave like they lost. You won, enjoy your Brexit. Those of us directly affected by it will pick up the pieces.


Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Penny Williamson (20th Feb 2021 18:55:01)

Bernard I am sorry that you consider my post depressing. I use the word “stupid” in this case advisedly because Remainers just don’t get it and say some very stupid things as Passfield Resident states when he/she says: “ I would go and live in Scotland, which in a few years will be independent and back in the EU.” Do you find that a sensible statement? What happened to the “Once in a lifetime vote on Scottish independence in 2014 and please before you or anyone else says that the majority in Scotland voted to remain in the EU, Scotland had already voted to remain in the UK and therefore had to abide by the majority vote. It is called democracy. In addition can you image the problems that would be caused on the borders of Scotland and England if Scotland did have another referendum, voted to leave the UK, and then joined the EU. You say that Brexiters are acting as though they lost. I must dispute that. They are not, they are just not ramming it down everyone’s throats and say nothing unless provoked by the Remainers. Can you imagine how the Brexiteers would be criticised by the Remainers if they behaved as though they had won and gloated? I think if the Remainers would stop bringing up Brexit there would be no further discussions. Decision made. I think that most Brexiters have behaved well and have not “crowed” over the Remainers. They just accepted the result with silent relief. I know that I have never started a Thread bragging about the fact that the Brexiters won or “rubbed salt into the wounds” of many of my friends who are Remainers. I respect that people have different views but I just get extremely exasperated with the Remainers who will not accept the result of the Referendum with good grace.
In conclusion Bernard I am not wrong with regard to my statement on the procurement of the vaccines currently being used in the UK. I but repeat what I said in my previous post and that is if we had still been part of the EU we would have been able to order vaccines but only from vaccine makers with whom the EU does not have an agreement so we would not have been able to order the Astrazeneca and Pfizer vaccines which have benefited so many already.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Bernard (20th Feb 2021 20:31:34)

Penny. No, you are still wrong. The vaccines being used in the UK now could have been procured by us if we were still in the EU, unless we signed-up to be the scheme at an EU Council meeting, which no state was obliged to do. Hungary decided to sign up, so didn't purchase the vaccines that the EU was negotiating for, but was free to buy Sputnik.

Your earlier comment that the other 27 counties were under duress to join the EU scheme was your invention. Penny, you applauded Sadly's post saying that remainers have very venomous thoughts and comparing the EU to Hitler. Did you find those statements sensible?

Last word to Penny. I'm as bored as everyone else is with this now.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- passfield resident (21st Feb 2021 08:06:46)

Penny-how dare you call me stupid? Scottish independence is a live issue. Your attitude is patronising in the extreme. It's because of attitudes like yours that a majority of Scottish voters are voting SNP- they are fed up with poor government from England. Your attitude reminds me of Mrs Thatcher's ignorance of Scottish affairs when her government trialled the Poll Tax in Scotland. In fact some of your posts remind me a lot of Mrs Thatcher.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Jacob (21st Feb 2021 09:12:36)

Morning all,

Penny I did ask you to prove you statement regarding the 27 counties having to sign up, regarding the vaccine. All I can see on the UK and European new is that they didn't

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Penny Williamson (21st Feb 2021 09:24:25)

Passfield Resident. I apologise for calling you stupid, but I will put it another way. To think that it would be a good idea for Scotland to leave the UK, join the EU thereby creating a border between England and Scotland is a very, very stupid idea. Bernard as you are so bored I won’t bother to reply to your post.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Judy (21st Feb 2021 10:12:49)

I think that Penny would be proud to be compared to Mrs Thatcher. I just wish we could move away from all the analogies with the 2nd world war. It is not unpatriotic to see the downsides of leaving the EU and no amount of jingoism will
alter our economic downturn.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Ian (21st Feb 2021 11:09:06)

Brexit is done, time will tell whether it was the right or wrong choice but for goodness sake, are we really going to now have months ahead of petty point scoring from both sides to justify their point of view where the subject has already decided, we have left the EU, let’s get on with building the UK’s future. For the record, I was a remainer and would still rather be part of an EU (not necessarily the current one)

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?
- Helen (21st Feb 2021 12:31:26)

Penny we are having to live with the trade border created again between Northern and Southern Ireland. It would not be much different. The problems are set to escalate in the summer when the new rules really take hold. I foresaw these problems before I voted. Businesses formerly in Britain are relocating to Europe.

Re: What are the new concrete structures at Longmoor camp?

Thanks Ian a very good post. I tried to say the same but I must have put it all wrong got shot at. Please everyone what ever you voted we must get this country going again no good guessing about the future it would be great if we could stay united the united KIngdom. I was born a war baby so have seen a great deal all governments all prime ministers . Run my own business from 1970 through all the strikes union dominance very hard. At the moment its very hard for everyone especially some business but we have been there before and come through so let’s pull together again.

Back to the original topic. I'm sorry people think security is a thing to be mocked and ridiculed. Especially when one thinks of the London Underground attacks; London's Borough Market killings; the Manchester Arena killings; the killing of Lee Rugby, I could go on.

Sharing any information concerning Her Majesty's armed forces is never a good idea in any setting, the smallest piece of information may be of use to a terrorist. Just as your bank details are valuable to a fraudster, and knowing your house will be empty for two weeks is valuable information to a burglar. I'm sure none of us would broadcast that information.

However, given the mocking responses to my concerns, and being told by a member of the Parish Council to "get a life," I have clearly over estimated the level of intellect of a very small minority of Liphook residents.

D for Dads army...it’s clear who has the intellect problem! Rather arrogant of you to decry the intelligence of those that disagree with your potty paranoid neurotic contributions. Showed this post to a friend of mine who works in military intelligence who had a good chuckle! Apparently they are plagued with calls from nutters who see ‘reds under every bed’ and conspiracy in every corner. Bet you’re the sort that used to ring the police whenever you heard an Irish accent!!!

D.

You suggested that people should be careful, when discussing Longmoor Talkback, in case the information fell in to the wrong hands.

Perhaps you should tell the M.O.D. to remove all the large red bordered signs on the A3 and adjoining roads giving directions to the site.

If the M.O.D. are content to build and place fuel containers in public view alongside a busy road, allow public access to the site, advertise the location with signage, I am fairly confident that they are not too concerned about it being mentioned on a local village web forum.

Charlie, Ian's last post demonstrates my point perfectly. I'm confused about his "reds under the bed" comment, Russia gave up on communism thirty years ago. As for the Irish accent comment, there are Irish regiments within the British Army. Maybe his "friend who works in military intelligence" hasn't told him that yet.

But enough of my bizarre paranoia.

D, really! That’s it? You’re done with your bizarre paranoia? Thank goodness
