The following Engineer units;

Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (Militia)

74 (Antrim Artillery) Engineer Regiment (Volunteers)

75 Engineer Regiment (Volunteers)

125 (Staffordshire) Field Support Squadron (Volunteers)

143 Plant Squadron R.E. (Volunteers)

873 Movement Light Squadron (Volunteers)

30 Engineer Brigade (V) REME Workshop (V)

 

There may have been STRE's as well.

 

The brigade was commanded by a regular Brigadier and brigade major, with TA staff officers, usually civil engineers. I believe it was unique in having a regular unit in a T. A. Brigade and was part of the ORBAT for BAOR. I don't know when it disbanded, but I believe the honours etc were transferred to 125 Field Support Squadron RE. Which is being struck off the ORBAT in July this year.
