Locations in Iceland.
The Brigade spent from October 1940 to December 1941 as a key part of the Iceland Garrison, defending Reykjavik and the Western Coast from possible invasion, and training hard in difficult conditions.
There was one significant move of locations during their stay on the island, to reflect a change in Brigade responsibilities within Iceland Force, or Alabaster Force, and this is reflected in the list below of the places in which Units were based - often in Platoon-sized bases, or even in Section Posts, such as Skagastrond.
