Reorganisations of London Units 1950-1956
- In 1950 the London Rifle Brigade (5) was amalgamated with The Rangers (12).
- The disbandment of Anti-Aircraft Command in 1955 necessitated a reduction in the number of anti-aircraft units; and the fourteen successor anti-aircraft units that existed in 1947 were reduced by amalgamation to seven.
- In 1956, 42nd Royal Tank Regiment (23) reverted to infantry, and chose to be known by their old
- title – The 23rd London Regiment.
