Have been working away with JPW over several years trying to piece together the early days of BAOR, a missing piece of history from the late 1940s, folks talk about WW2 but the chat disappears shortly after VE day 8 May 45, some regimental histories give a brief account of occupation duties, however JPW and myself quickly realised that memories cannot always be relied on, enter documents from the public records office in Kew, to cut a long story short we have been able to piece together an Order of Battle from 8 May 45 to 1948, in brief:

21st Army Group
2nd Army
4 x Corps
14 x Divisions
84 X Brigades including HQ Corps, Divisional and Army Group Royal Artillery who were at brigade strength

This is just the British formations; need to add the Canadian, Polish, Dutch, Belgium, Norwegian and Danish troops, who were part of 21st Army Group later British Army of the Rhine

https://britisharmyingermany.com

My first attempt at building a website, be gentle with me and your input will be appreciated, this will “under construction” for several years and will complement http://baor-locations.org

by early 1948 HQ British Army of the Rhine consisting of:
2nd Infantry Division
Hamburg District
Hannover District
7th Armoured Brigade
4th Army Group Royal Artillery
31st Independent Infantry Brigade
Norwegian Brigade Group
Danish Infantry Brigade Group

Life did change with the Cold War but 1949 can wait for now!

BTW on a personal note, arrived in BAOR 50 years ago this week from Boy Service in Verden-Aller and been back here living in Lower Saxony since 2011 cheers

Thanks Steve, I just figured out mine: 52 years ago last Oct 12. Whaa, time does creep up on us.

PS: Tried your new site, it won't let me in. Opp's it did now.
