27 Fd Regt RA

The Regiment adopted the role of a field training unit at Itzehoe in 1946 and in 1947 the batteries were renumbered to;
6 Bty (from 3 Bty),
23 Bty (from 5 Bty),
112 Bty (from 28 Bty)
and 137 Bty (from 16 Bty - which had been issued with x 240 mm guns - super heavy - on 21 Oct 1945)

There were two barracks in Itzehoe and also have an update on 27 Regt as taken from Historical Records at Kew

8 Jul 46 – 1st Heavy Regiment RA joined the Guards Division from 3rd Army Group Royal Artillery of 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division – Borgard Barracks Itzehoe relieving the 4th Battalion Coldstream Guards in Eckenforde on internal security duties – to Richmond Barracks Itzehoe – command to BAOR School of Artillery
31 Dec 46 – to Schleswig-Holstein Sub Area Hamburg District on the disbandment of the Guards Division
1 May 47 – redesignated 27th Heavy Regiment RA
early 48 – to UK

12 Mar 48 – 2nd Independent Parachute Brigade Group – HQ Marine Barracks Schleswig replaced Schleswig-Holstein Sub Area and 7th Battalion Parachute Regiment moved into Itzehoe with 334 Forward Observation Battery RA

16 Jul 48 – 2nd Independent Parachute Brigade Group redesignated 16th Independent Parachute Brigade Group and 7th Battalion Parachute Regiment redesignated 3rd Battalion Parachute Regiment

JPW and myself are endeavouring to piece together the early days of unit movement in BAOR

Steve

I have a third Barracks in the Itzehoe area briefly occupied by the British Army. The former Waldersee Training area, known as Conway Barracks (the influence of 53 Welsh Division in very clear), in the Bundeswehr era was known as Ibbenbeckstedler Training Area.

Have yet to confirm which barracks was occupied by the British Para Battalion Group/ Norwegian Battalion (very briefly) and the Danes
