HQ 11th Signal and West Midlands Brigade

Headquarters 11th Signal and West Midlands Brigade is located at Donnington, near Telford and we cover the counties of Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands conurbation.

Brigade role

Our role is to provide administrative support for around 8,000 Army personnel who are based in the region, as well as forming a vital link between the Army and our local communities.

The Brigade has seven Regular Army signal regiments and four Army Reserve signal regiments.

In addition, we have command responsibilities for the Army Cadet Forces and some of the Army Reserve units in the region.

HQ 11th Signal and West Midlands Brigade is able to offer support to those leaving the services and seeking to settle in the region.

Long-established links with the local community have been strengthened through huge local support for the Armed Forces Covenant.
