Military Corrective Training Centre Colchester

The Military Corrective Training Centre (MCTC), in Colchester was formerly a wartime Prisoner of War Camp No 186 and is the only surviving Military Establishment following the closure of MCTC Stonecutters Island in Hong Kong in 1976.

The foundations for the rebuild of the MCTC, as it looks today, were laid in 1983 and the detainees moved into the new accommodation in 1986. In 1988, the official opening of MCTC Colchester was carried out by the then Secretary of State for Defence, The Right Hon George Younger MP.
