Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 26th Infantry Brigade was a 2nd Line Territorial Army brigade, and duplicate of the 152nd Infantry Brigade, during the Second World War. After the reformation of the Territorial Army in 1947 it was active as an independent infantry brigade within Scottish Command for a period. The Territorial Army (TA) is the spare time volunteer force of the British Army. With around 35,500 members, the TA forms about a quarter of the overall manpower strength of the British Army.[1] TA members regularly volunteer to serve overseas on operations, either with TA units, or as individuals attached to regular units. Over one thousand TA soldiers are deployed overseas on operations each year. The highest ranking Territorial is Major-General Greg Smith TD who is Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff (Reserves and Cadets).show more
