At least we still own those, unlike all the MOD houses that were sold for a knockdown price to entrepreneurs , who later made millions from them.

You can't blame the Entrepreneurs for that though can you Mike.

Well, as most of them probably got the houses by corruptly bribing the relevant people, then possibly I can

I don't believe the bit about "rent".
When I worked in MOD houses in the seventies they were all identical and all in small groups or estates, on or off the camps.
They didn't appear to have private landlords as the DOE did all the maintenance and repairs.
