Breckland scenery from Eastmere.
Eastmere on STANTA was formerly a replica of a west European village (aka German) used to train soldiers for Fighting in Built Up Areas (FIBUA). It was subsequently rebuilt as an Iraqi village. This was never really used in anger as it was completed after the British withdrawal from Iraq.
The walls of the compounds are lower than an Afghan village; however the buildings are up to three storeys. These are constructed from shipping containers then covered with wood and sprayed with concrete.
