Operational Role: 1 (NL) Corps Forward-Deployed Element

The somewhat elaborately named Command of Netherlands Troops in Seedorf, Hohne, Langemannshof was basically a Dutch garrison command in West Germany. It was part of and provided the military infrastructure for the forward-deployed element of 1 (NL) Corps, which further comprised 103 Reconnaissance Battalion, 41 Armoured Brigade and 41 Engineer Battalion. The command was held by Commander, 41 Armoured Brigade. In addition to their normal duties the staff and staff detachment would support the commander in his relations with German authorities. As can be gathered from the difference in peace and wartime strengths, the command was primarily a peacetime organisation.1

On mobilisation the aforementioned units would deploy towards the Inner German Border to cover the approach march of the rest of 1 (NL) Corps from the Netherlands. See 1 (NL) Corps, Maldeployment and 41 Armoured Brigade, Operational Role: The Corps Covering Force. The table below summarises the locations and personnel strengths of the forward-deployed element:
