Perkins, later Director of the British School at Rome, were posted there at the start of the war. After 1945, the camp was turned into a housing estate and finally demolished by 1971. The camp had been built on the site of a Napoleonic Wars target, consisting of two stone walls with a cast iron plate in between. This was demolished when the camp was built.
