Interestingly, CESSAC’s first facility in Colchester opened there in 1887! (see link below), as the CofE Soldiers’ Institute:  http://www.colchesterhistoricbuildingsforum.org.uk/drupal/node/281.  It wasn’t until 1891 that the then 4 separate ‘institutes’ formed an association, later admitting sailors & then airmen and eventually changing the title to CESSAC.
