No idea what the first building was used for but it's just along from this one which I was told was a ww2 hangar? These can be seen along the B4011 from Thame to Bicester. Just past the Bullingdon Prison and before the second Piddington turn.

Someone's telling you porkies. Nothing to do with RAF Bicester. See this (http://www.airfieldinformationexchange.org/community/showthread.php?6173-What-type-of-Hangar&p=70266#post70266)

MOD tend to use the term hangar for any warehouse type building.

The Army munitions depot at Arncott has a long history as a CAD, COD and whatever they call it now so having a dedicated thread is useful since there will surely be future queries and information offered.

I saw your two photos of Bicester buildings. You may by now have an answer to what they were. However if not the tin structure was the Civilian Headquarters back in the early 60s. The brick building was building G10. It was mainly used by depot transport cargo section during the 60s and 70s. Then as an MHE training shed. I am not sure what its used for now. Yes I worked there in the 60s and 70s..

An odd choice as a 'gate guard'

Bearing in mind that all supply aspects are under one agency (DSDA) now, it's more aesthetic than a boat or a forklift!
