Does anyone remember the short lived trial in the early 80's when 6 Armd Bde became 6 Airmobile Bde ?
It was a precursor to later changes to 24 (?) Brigade and was done on trial basis only - 6 Bde later reverting to an armoured brigade.
I'm looking for information on the orbat of the Brigade, whether it was just 2 x Inf Battalions or whether they had artillery support, and if so - what ?

We where based in Peninnsula and Barrosa Barracks in Deilinghofen near to Hemer. It consisted of Us 2nd Bn The Light Infantry and the Gordon Highlanders. We did not have any Artillery Support. We had our own Mortars and Milan thats about it.
