History of this Location


Opened in 1938, it was commissioned as HMS Condor in Jun 1940, to train naval aviators in deck landings. The site included the Air Engineering School (AES), which moved, with some of its instructional airframes, to Lee-on-Solent around Aug 1970.

The Navy handed the site over to the Royal Marines as RM Condor in 1971. 45 CDO and a battery of 29 CDO RA have their base here.
