Excellent find however much later than Jul 45 (BAOR came into force 25 Aug 45), 109 Medical Company was a 7 Armd Div asset and they arrived Oct 46, also my first record of 24 Training Field Ambulance is Jul 47 however have yet to research RAMC units in detail study

The map came from a booklet called "The Training Centre, British Army Of The Rhine, 1947", so the information printed on the map presumably dates from 1947. The map itself obviously could be older. (The booklet was printed by Printing and Stationery Services, Control Commission for Germany (BE)).

Of possible interest is this paragraph:- 'Perhaps the most notable addition to the Brigade recently has been the formation of 809 Armoured Transport Squadron RASC. The headquarters and two troops are now organised and have been undergoing training with the assistance of the School of Infantry and 1st Royal Tank Regiment for the past three months. The squadron is equipped with RAM II armoured personnel carriers and training of all four troops is expected to be completed by the end of July 1947.' Note that the Brigade mentioned is 4 Training Brigade RASC in Churchill Barracks, Lippstadt.
