It's been quite a while since I visited the Royal Engineers museum, I was amazed at the amount and variety of the exhibits. Well worth another look soon, I think.

Inside the Royal Engineers Museum at Brompton is a full size V2 Rocket, on display. Admission fee.

I'd like to have a look around Brompton Barracks someday, but unfortunately I don't think they do open days for the general public. Also, although there are plenty of photographs of the main entrances of the other barracks in Medway, I've never seen the same view of Brompton Barracks before it was remodelled, which I think was sometime in the 1960's.
