Untitled[edit]

The unit listing for the american Berlin Brigade is not complete (a more comprehensive (but still not complete) listing can be found at www.western-allies-berlin.com). Also the french Berlin Brigade is not mentioned at all and the close relationship between these three Brigades which was unique throughout NATO.

we dont need no stinking bages[edit]

The US army badge seems to be a bit wrong, is there a source for it.

Suggested split up into Berlin Brigade & Berlin Infantry Brigade[edit]

Berlin Brigade was the official name of the US-troops in West Berlin. The official name of the UK-troops was Berlin Infantry Brigade for about 27 years of it's existence (see table), that's the majority of time. The UK-troops never been called Berlin Brigade. Therefore I suggest the split up of the article. Joerg, the Flag of Barbados.svg BajanZindy (talk) 11:15, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

NOt sure there is really enough material for two artcles. But you might be right. Maybe rename it NATO garrison Berlin and add info about the French brigade..Slatersteven (talk) 13:45, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

I think it would be appropriate to create a separate article for the UK Berlin Infantry Brigade. NATO garrison Berlin is not a correct term. These forces were not part of NATO, they were separate force stationed in Berlin that enjoyed special status as Occupation forces based on an agreement between the allies (US, UK, France and the Soviet Union) at the end of WWII.

actualy they were part of the NATO command. The British brigade being part of BOAR but not part of 1st corps.Slatersteven (talk) 16:36, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
I think an appropriate name for a combined (overview-like )article would be Allied Forces in Berlin, that's then all four allies. Regarding the (US) Berlin Brigade, I'd keep the name of the article and regarding more material for an article about the (UK) Berlin Infantry Brigade, I got a couple of books here (e.g. Berlin and the British Ally, 1945-1990), with a good amount of material. For the french Forces Françaises à Berlin, we'd need a french speaker with the book BERLIN Des français au service de la liberté in our round.

Dead link(s)[edit]

The mcnair-museum.de external link was dead today (16 Apr 2013). I am replacing it with a likely-looking link to http://www.mcnair-barracks.us-berlin.com/, but the content of those (from the description of the .de site) is likely to be quite different. BSVulturis (talk) 20:50, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
