THE PRELUDE TO ALDERSHOT

Great Britain had not been in conflict since the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 and the new generation of officers had never seen active service. The lack of a cohesive fighting force for one of the main powers in Europe was unthinkable and the matter was brought to the attention of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

After the success of The Great Exhibition in 1851, Albert gave the order for a major training camp to be set up on the heath land at Chobham, under the auspices of Lord Hardinge, in the summer of 1853.
