Orchard road

East Surrey Regiment, 3rd Vol. Battalion

‘Kingston-on-Thames is the head quarters of the 6th Territorial Force Battalion of the East Surrey Regiment. A Drill hall was built in 1911 in Orchard road.’ (Kelly 1913)

The Kingston Companies (D, E & F) were also based here.

Kelly, 1891. lists ‘East Surrey Regiment, 3rd Vol. Battalion; head quarters of battalion and of D, E, F & G companies, Drill hall, Orchard road.’

This drill hall has been demolished, probably in the mid-1970s. We are grateful to Guy Smith for confirmation.
