The War Office acquired circa 3,000 acres of land at Pirbright in 1875 and established rifle ranges and a training depot for the Brigade of Guards. The current facilities at Pirbright, which were built in the 1950s and extended in the 1970s, are known as Elizabeth Barracks. Additional facilities close by, which were completed in 2008, are known as Alexander Barracks.
The Centre provides training for all recruits for the Army Air Corps, the Royal Regiment of Artillery, Royal Corps of Signals, the Royal Logistic Corps, the Adjutant General's Corps, the Royal Army Medical Corps and the Intelligence Corps.
