Can anyone share any details about the TO&E of the US Armored Cavalry Regiments stationed in West Germany in the late 1950s? I’m particularly interested in the 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 11th, and 14th ACR spanning 1956-1960.
I discovered in my notes that I had typo-ed and my 1958 organization was actually for 1968. The earliest info that I have dates to about 1965, maybe ’64, but nothing before, except notes regarding when new equipment was received in the late 1950s. Any help is appreciated.

You might find it useful to take a squizz at McGrath’s “Scouts Out!” from the Combat Studies Institute, particularly page 149.
It’s available as a .pdf Harry Freeman’s from:
…might be useful for a few other things, too.
All the best,

On the basis of a very rapid skim-read I found it depressingly light on British WW2 recce — we set up a whole new Corps do do it, which seems to escape mention — but then the British Army’s habits (it would be stretching a point to call them “doctrine” — before the 1980s that was something only foreigners had) are often somewhat baffling to outsiders. And insiders, come to that.
All the best,
