The Bugle Journal

There have been a number of house journals over the years, the longest-running being RARDE News. A copy of The Bugle from 1948 was recently donated to the Collection. It started at Woolwich Arsenal but evidently continued at Fort Halstead.

The cover image was scanned and forms the logo we are using for the new journal.

The journal is being produced by current Dstl and QinetiQ staff. When the new Fort Halstead Staff Association is up and running, it is intended that The Bugle will transfer to that organisation for them to take forward.

As a paid up member of the Fort Halstead Trust you will receive a discount code enabling you to download all copies of the Bugle for free. Check your joining email for more information.


Journals such as the Bugle are only possible through public submissions. We are keen to hear from anyone who has a story to tell about their time at Fort Halstead, one of the outstations or during their time in ARDE, RARDE or Dstl. You can get in touch with the Bugle editor using the form below and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
