Decoding a notice on the fence of the Pirbright Ranges

Readers will know of my regular walk from Lightwater to Deepcut, and that it provides a source of blog posts – mostly nature-related. On my last walk I spotted a new notice on the fence of the Pirbright Ranges. It was near the the junction of Old Bisley Road with the Maultway. Here’s the notice, and the explanation of the notice is below the photo.

What’s the meaning of the notice HDPRCC 5 Miler? Pretty easy to think it’s related to a run or a walk. But what is HDPRCC? A Google search reveals that it’s connected with the Army Training Centre at Pirbright.

The HDPRCC stands for Household Division and Parachute Regiment Centralized Courses. Good to know we’ll still have soldiers in our borough after the Army leave Princess Royal Barracks.
