MILITARY PRISON TO BE CLOSED.
The military authorities have decided to abandon Dover Military Gaol, on the eastern cliffs, which was formerly used as a convict prison. The prison at Woking, which is at present only a detention prison, will be the chief military gaol from October 1. It is understood that the prison buildings at Dover are to be utilised as barracks for the Royal Marines, who will be quartered there in connection with the protection of the naval harbour.
