As we have stated elsewhere on this site Historic Steve and I are involved in a private project to try and create a basic ORBAT/LOCSTAT for the British Occupation Zone of Germany for the period VE Day (8th May 1945) onwards. I am lead for the Northern Coastal areas and naturally want to include the significant Canadian Army presence from VE Day to May 1946. Over the past four years I have collected a fair amount of relevant information. My primary source are the appropriate War Diaries held in the National Archives at Kew. This is complimented by Regimental and Formation Histories held in the Military Library in Aldershot, the Internet (but I have learnt to be cautious of some the information posted) and equally importantly contact with Canadian Veterans Organisations and individuals who have generously shared information I am having particular difficulty with two Canadian formations who remained in Germany for only 2/3 weeks after VE Day. The Canadian Government had insisted that there would be no repetition of 1918 when it was two years before some Canadian servicemen finally returned home from WW1. In 1945 there was a strict limitation in both time and numbers on the Canadian contribution to the future BAOR. The Formations are 2 (Canadian) AGRA Comprising a Headquarters, 1 Heavy Regiment RCA, 3 Medium Regiment RCA, 4 Medium Regiment RCA, 7 Medium Regiment RCA and 19 Field Regiment RCA The HQ 2 AGRA War Diaries indicated that in the last weeks of the War the individual Regiments had been deployed forward to provide additional firepower under command of the advancing Divisions and that the HQ was in the small town of Meppen carrying out adminiistrative not operational tasks Only the whereabouts of 7 Medium Regiment RCA, in the Emden area (in support of 3 Canadian Infantry Division) and 19 Field Regiment RCA in the Oldenburg area (in support either 2 Infantry or 4 Armoured Division?)are mentioned. 2 Armoured Brigade Headquarters VE Day In tented acommodation in the Bad Zwischehahn area (and plagued by flies) 9 May Aschendorf 18 May Holland with entire Brigade. 6th Armoured Regiment (1st Hussars) VE Day? 9th May Papenburg 10th Armoured Regiment (Fort Gary Horse) Oldenburg throughout the period 27th Armoured Regiment (Sherbroke Fusiliers Whereabouts unknown I would be most grateful for any information on the locations of the RHQs in this period from the clearly very knowledgeable Members of this splendid site (for obvious reasons in view of the span of my project I am having to ignore subunit (Battery/Squadron) locations).
