1st Battalion The Royal Irish Rangers move to Berlin.

Event
Tue, 05/01/1979 - Sun, 05/01/1983

1 R IRISH moved from Little Rissington to Berlin during May 1979 for a 3-year tour. Most tactical training and field firing was carried out in the British Zone. This usually meant a road move through the Russian Zone but on one occasion 1 R IRISH was deployed back from Sennelager to Berlin in case of a repeat of the Berlin Airlift when the road corridor was closed. Other training was carried out in Berlin.
