I would like to include here a list of TA units and headquarters etc. I have made a start with Glasgow. If anyone can add any other citys and towns please include them in this thread but no chat please just lists. All chat will be removed.

Note: that it would be good to include the units present prior to the 1957 Defence White Paper when TA units were reduced from 266 fighting units to 195, and when many units were amalgamated.

Hi Paul.

Your header states 'Territorial Army Sites', however, you included RAuxAF units in your list. The Reserve Forces consist of more than the Territorial Army, and the following site may be of help. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reserve_Forces_and_Cadets_Association My last job in the MOD before I retired was working in the Directorate of Reserve Forces and Cadets as a Desk Officer.
