Jellalabad Tower



The main tower at Jellalabad Barracks, I don't know the reason behind the slit windows - surely by the time this was built there was no defensive reason to build them this way? One thing is for sure - they wouldn't let much light into the building. British Barracks have a long and distinguished history of being uncomfortable - I stayed in accommodation in Dorset that had been condemned, 8 men to a room with a metal frame bed and a metal locker - comfortable is not a word that springs to mind. By contrast our barracks in Hildesheim, Germany was an old Luftwaffe Kaserne - the rooms were smaller and more comfortable.
