We've had a few threads on discipline and punishments, but nothing much on military nicks. Not much found after a relatively lazy Google, though quite a nice page on the original Glasshouse here: The Glasshouse - The Aldershot Military Detention Barracks The biggest alteration however, came in 1944 with the building of 'association rooms'. Designed in 1870 to isolate prisoners, eighty years on, the southern half of the prison's top floor was converted into areas, the size of ten individual cells, where prisoners could mix freely. The ground floor continued in single-cell form for the rest of its' existence. By 1946 there were between 400 and 500 inmates at the prison: more than double the number the building had originally housed. The overcrowding was such that prisoners slept in three-tier bunks in single cells and each association room held as many as 20 to 25 men. On 23/24 February 1946, a number of prison inmates rioted destroying the main building. Further damage was caused by the water from the hoses used by the Army Fire Service to quell the riot. The disturbances lasted from 5pm on the Saturday until the late afternoon of the Sunday. Eighteen soldiers of various units and one Royal Marine were court-martialled as a result in June 1946. So unsurprisingly they weren't exactly short of inmates after the expansion in the services required by war, but we don't hear much about it. Anyone got any more on wartime military prisons? (of any nation) Maybe even personal recollections? Cheers, Adam.
