Germany - Brydon House
Brydon House, Sennelager, Germany, is an Army-led Personnel Recovery Centre, delivered by The Royal British Legion and is dedicated to service personnel in Germany for as long as required whilst recognising the timelines for the Army’s proposed withdrawal by 2020.
Brydon House has been established in Normandy Barracks, Sennelager, Germany from within existing Garrison facilities with capital funding provided by the Royal British Legion.
The centre, which opened in February 2012, offers welfare support, career management and resettlement packages, with residential accommodation for nine personnel and a further 15 day attendees.
Brydon House is named after William Brydon CB, an assistant surgeon in the British East India Company Army during the First Anglo-Afghan War who is famous for being the only member of an army of 4,500 men to reach safety at the end of the retreat from Kabul.
