Brydon House PRC, Germany

Brydon House, the first Personnel Recovery Centre (PRC) in British Forces Germany, opened on 1 February 2011.

The facility at Normandy Barracks, Sennelager, provides residential accommodation for nine wounded, injured and sick personnel and capacity for a further six day attendees.

Its location in Sennelager gives access to the full range of facilities required for effective recovery that are present in the well-established garrison area - including welfare, medical rehabilitation, education and resettlement.

The Legion is the major financial contributor, providing £600,000, with the Army Central Fund providing £224,000.

The facility was named Brydon House, after William Brydon CB, an assistant surgeon in the British East India Company Army and is part of the Ministry of Defence's Defence Recovery Capability.

The opening was covered by BFBS TV and the report can be viewed below.
