Soldiers at a British Army barracks in Aldershot say they have been living without reliable hot water and heating for almost a year.
One soldier told the BBC that conditions at Keogh Barracks are “worse than those on the frontline”.
It highlights a wider problem as the Ministry of Defence struggles to find the money to maintain its vast estate.
Yesterday a defence minister admitted “we need more money” to carry out maintenance and repairs.
More than a hundred soldiers live in Keogh Barracks on the Aldershot base.
The BBC has seen letters sent by some to their commanding officer complaining about the conditions they’ve had to endure.
One says “I’ve never had a hot shower in my block”. Another says “the block and rooms are freezing”, while several warn of “low morale”.
