77th Brigade

77th Brigade is a combined Regular Army and Army Reserve unit. The Reserve element draws specialists on a nationwide basis. This new Brigade aims to challenge the difficulties of modern warfare using non-lethal engagement and legitimate non-military levers as a means to adapt behaviours of the opposing forces and adversaries.

Who we are

In September 2014 the Security Assistance Group was formed and assumed command of the Military Stabilisation and Support Group, the Media Operations Group, 15 Psychological Operations Group and the Security Capacity Building team.

In July 2015, the 4 individual units above were reshaped and formed the new 5 Columns of 77th Brigade:

  • No.1 Column - Planning support focusing on the behavioural analysis of actors, audiences and adversaries
  • No.2 Column - Provides the detail synchronisation and delivery of effect
  • No.3 Column - Provides highly deployable specialists to other parts of the Armed Forces and other Government organisations
  • No.4 Column - Provides professional specialists in Security Capacity Building in Defence
  • No.5 Column - Media Operations and Civil Affairs

In October 2015 No.7 Column was added:

  • No.7 Column - The Engineer and Logistics Staff Corps - A powerful and influential specialist Army Reserve unit providing engineering, logistics and communication consultancy to both the MOD and across government agencies.
There is not a No.6 Column for historical reasons.
