RAF Brawdy - Cawdor Barracks

Cawdor Barracks

Until 2018, the base is home to the 14th Signal Regiment ("14 Signals"), the British Army's electronic warfare unit. The Regiment has a HQ squadron and five signal squadrons, one of which is based at RAF Digby

  • 14th Signal Regiment (Electronic Warfare)
    • Headquarters Squadron (now renamed as Operations Support Squadron)
    • 223 Signal Squadron (Electronic Warfare)
    • 224 Signal Squadron (Electronic Warfare)
    • 226 Signal Squadron (Electronic Warfare)
    • 237 Signal Squadron (Electronic Warfare)
    • 245 Signal Squadron (Electronic Warfare)

Under plans announced in early 2013, Cawdor Barracks will be closed in 2018 and 14 Signals will relocate to MOD St Athan, near Cardiff. The site will then be sold for development. The reasons cited for the closure are cost savings and operational benefits from being based with other Army units.
