Unit History: Plas Llanfair

Plas Llanfair
Plas Llanfair was commandeered by the War Office during the Second World War and used for unknown purposes by the US Army until they departed after D Day. Later in 1944 it was leased to Indefatigable, an establishment which trained boys for a career in the Merchant Navy and a short history of Indefatigable is given below. The School closed in July 1995, after which the property was on the market- for a year before being purchased by MOD as a replacement for the old Joint Services Mountain Training Centre at Tywyn. However, in purchasing the property, the MOD agreed to retain the name in the title of the new establishment; hence The Joint Service Mountain Training Centre Indefatigable.
 
The school could not carry on and in July 1995, at the start of the summer holidays, the Governors were forced to close it. However, in purchasing the property, the MOD agreed to retain the name in the title of the new establishment; hence The Joint Service Mountain Training Centre Indefatigable
