Been in preparation for some time and will continue to be "work in progress"

https://britisharmyingermany.com

Many thanks to JPW and a small team with their assistance over the years trying to piece together the early days of BAOR, a missing piece of our history, folks talk about WW2 but the chat normally disappears shortly after VE day 8 May 45, many forum members have helped and 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 and 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

You will find an Order of Battle down to brigade level up to 1948

So far managed to complete 3rd (British) Infantry Division, excluding Corps and Army Troops these will be listed later

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, by early 1948, HQ British Army of the Rhine was down to just:

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 start of the Cold War however 1949 can wait for now!

Thanks for your support guys, hoping to publish up to early 1949, the start of the “Cold War” and clearly missing from history, the internet/publications are useful but JPW and myself have found many errors, now hope that BAOR Locations can record these early days with clarity, my first project was Iserlohn that I wish to continue with and also working on Verden-Aller my first posting 50 years ago, have passed my research for Hameln to the webmaster of https://british-army-in-hameln.com and hope in the future that other garrisons can be researched in detail with the help from my research study
