CO 33 Engineer Regiment (EOD) : Message to families

On 7th November, the Defence Secretary announced in Parliament that many military sites will be disposed of in the future. This includes Carver Barracks which has a scheduled disposal of 2031. Units based here will be relocated to another station, the whereabouts of which will be determined over the next 18 months. We've been promised plenty of warning but in short… nothing will happen anytime soon.
