77 BRIGADE

https://www.army.mod.uk/who-we-are/formations-divisions-brigades/force-troops-command/77-brigade/

 

The 77th Brigade is a British Army formation, created in January 2015 under the Army 2020 concept. It is the renaming of the Security Assistance Group which was created under the Army 2020 concept.  It is based at Denison Barracks in Hermitage, Berkshire and will be fully operational by April 2015

 

The brigade was named the 77th in tribute to the 77th Indian Infantry Brigade, which was part of the Chindits, an Indian Army guerrilla warfare force led by Orde Wingate who used unorthodox tactics against the Japanese in Burma in World War II. The arm badges of the revived 77th will show a mythical Burmese creature in reference to the Chindits

It includes the following units:[3]

 

·         Headquarters Element
·         Media Operations Group (MOG) - Media Operations
·         Security Capacity Building Team (SCBT) - Military Capacity Building
·         15 Psychological Operations Group (15 POG) - Psychological Warfare
·         Military Stabilisation Support Group (MSSG) - Stabilisation and Conflict Prevention

 

The unit's objectives will be similar to that of the SAG. Specifically, it is to:

  • Provide support to other government departments in the aim to achieve stability overseas;
  • lead on special influence methods; build military capacity in all stages of conflict

 

  

 

77 Brigade is  a combined Regular and Army Reserve unit. Our aim is to challenge the difficulties of modern warfare using non-lethal engagement and legitimate non-military levers as a means to adapt behaviours of the opposing forces and adversaries.
