Bungalow F, the only one of the three Bungalows at the Stanley Village end of the Camp to have been in continuous use up to today, is closed because of the black market activities that took place over the fence close by:

The unfortunate males who had been residents of this Bungalow for so long, were forced to forego their comparative comfort and privacy, and move into the odd places which were available. It was impossible to find adequate accommodation for all of them, and the Mosque, formerly used by the Indian warders, was taken over.
