PostSubject: Intelligence Corps Units   16/2/2014, 11:12

Only just joined this site but couldn't help noticing that no Intelligence Corps Detachments are included anywhere. I was attached to 20 Armourd Brigade Intelligence Section, located in Brigade HQ, Hobart Barracks. I served in that unit April 1968 - July 1969 before being posted to HQNI in August 1969.

Every Brigade HQ in BAOR had an Intelligence Section reporting to a GSO3 (Int). There were also many Counter Intelligence Detachments across Northern Germany At that time all Intelligence Sections were part of 7 Intelligence Company which reported in to Int & Sy Grp BAOR.

Regards
Barry Keattch

Welcome Barry ! Yep, you must be the first Acorn to admit to being on net here. For some reason, apart from a bunch of Gunners and a sprinkling of tankies other teeth armed regiments like infantry haven't surfaced here yet. You'll see Scaleys are well represented, so are ACC and Logistics. Watch it lads ! Barry might be taking notes..........

I remember Hobart Barracks well. I went back there during a business trip around 1998. A german guard was very suspicious as I was walking around the perimeter! I understand that now it's all civilian.

Barry

Welcome, your contributions will be most welcome bringing a new dimension to this site

Am I correct in thinking there was a significant Int Corps presence within 13 and 14 Signals Regiments?

Welcome Barry to the site home of witty banter fun and *ollocks you are no doubt the most intelligent guy on site today because the guys on here have forgotten anything they ever knew if they knew it in the first place.Most our brains have fermented (lots of pink gin's at high noon) this is the limit of our intelligence so you may be called upon when questions become to difficult ok.By the way I am chief cook and wine goblet cleaner (they wont give me another job Sad

You're right about a significant I-Corps presence in 13 & 14 Sig Regts but I'm afraid I chose the Operator Int & Sy route rather than SigInt so know virtually nothing about that side of the fence.

13 squaddies on a motor cycle with their arms outstretched. Hmmm I guess they improvised an antenna. . . .
