The Rock of Gibraltar has not only become a definition of permanence, it has also over the years been synonymous with UK military power.
It's name gives the Royal Marines their motto, after their role in establishing Britain's strong point at the gateway to the Mediterranean.
But like everywhere else in the defence world, the Rock is having to take its share of cutbacks.
Under a programme known as Project Euston, in five years the force deployed there from the UK will have fallen by a third and millions of pounds worth of real estate will be handed over.
