The Depot continued as, a training centre but on a much reduced establishment.


The outbreak of the Korean War and the continuing Malayan Emergency saw the Depot on a full training programme of recruits. Recruits included Michael Caine the actor. A large number trained at the Depot saw active service with units in Korea and the 1st Battalion of The Queen's during their three and a half years tour in Malaya. Sadly, some never returned.
