Op Telic Organisation

#1
Now this stuff is no longer subject to OPSEC, I wonder if anyone can help with this.

I am interested in how land forces were deployed during the 'mid-Telics' ie from about Telic IV until the outlying bases started to be closed down. I was there on Telic V but, like most people, had a worm's eye view of things and had only a hazy idea of what other units were up to.

This page lists the order of battle for the tours in question:

Operation Telic order of battle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Basically, there were 4-5 infantry battalions in theatre during these Telics. How and where were they deployed (i.e 1 in Maysan, 2 in Basra or whatever)? How were they spread out across the individual bases (ie a Company at the OSB etc etc).

Hope someone can give me some pointers.

Try a freedom of information request to HQ Army or to PJHQ. Some unfortunate might get tasked to trawl the records to give you an answer. I suggest this because once I was that person and had to reply to similar requests about the RESOLUTE, LODESTAR and the Kosovo gig - Op name escapes me now.

Alternatively, you could live without the info and let people get on with something more constructive.

Cheers Thruster that's spot on mate. Unfortunately the OP died in a house fire in Dec 2011.
