Im interested in how the British Army would have gone about mobilising in the Cold War any time after 1962 when conscription ended. Did the army plan for a short or long war? Would they have shut down training units to augment the fighting units or expanded them? What would have happened to the people under training? What would all the training and admin units do after mobilisation? I've read about General Composite Reserve companies being formed - who would they be formed from - regular reservists? Regulars? Any idea how many? I also know that the School of Infantry had to generate certain units for special duties - would it still have trained? What would have happened to TA permanent staff, I read somewhere that they had a shadow role? Any info appreciated. Its just an interest of mine.
