The MoD evokes the spirit of the Chindits in new 77 Brigade
« on: January 31, 2015, 01:31:42 AM »
Evoking the spirit of the Second World War ‘Chindits’ special forces, the British Ministry of Defence has established a new 77 Brigade.

The Ministry of Defence says 77 Brigade, formally to be created on 1 April 2015, is responsible for the integration and delivery of all non-lethal and non-military effects on military operations. Specifically it will support "the delivery of Information Operations, including psychological operations and deployed media operations looking at the traditional and unconventional means of shaping behaviours through the use of dynamic narratives. It is also responsible for providing specialist capabilities to integrate the full range of national levers with deployed military operations ranging from reconstruction and humanitarian assistance to support to political, economic and commercial operations and the integration of local forces that can support desired effects. 77 Brigade will play a key part in enabling the UK to fight in the information age."

The Brigade, based in Hermitage, Berkshire, is 42% reservist and is also finding “new ways of allowing civilians with bespoke skills to serve alongside their military counterparts”.

Ignoring the media's fixation on "Twitter-Troops" and "Facebook Warriors", for more on what 77 Brigade is really about see from page 121 here: http://army.newsdeskmedia.com/Images/Upload/files/TheBritishArmy2014.pdf
