List Of Military Barracks In Ghana. Complete List
In this post, I will take you through the complete list of military barracks in Ghana, where to find them and other necessary information you need to know about these barracks.
Military barracks is simply a building or group of buildings where soldiers or other members of the armed forces live and work.
The primary goal of barracks is to keep soldiers separated from civilians while also reinforcing discipline, training, and esprit de corps. They’ve been dubbed “military discipline factories.”
Barracks can be permanent or temporal structures that can be demolished and reassembled somewhere. Modern-day barracks have all the features of a community as it is one on its own. There are schools, hospitals, recreational centres, training centres, car parks, markets, restaurants and a lot more in these barracks.
In Ghana, over 50 per cent of all military personnel live in barracks together with their families. These barracks have all the facilities mentioned above in them which makes life easier for military personnel residing in them.
As mentioned earlier, we will take a look at all the military barracks in Ghana, that host all these gallant soldiers but before that let’s learn something brief about the Ghana Armed Forces.
A Brief History Of The Ghana Armed Forces
The Gold Coast Constabulary was formed in 1879 from members of the Hausa Constabulary of Southern Nigeria to provide internal security and law enforcement in the British colony of the Gold Coast. As part of the Ashanti campaign, the regiment received its first battle honour in this shape.
The Ghana Regiment was represented by the GAF War Flag during World War II’s Burma Campaign in the South-East Asian Theatre.
Following the formation of the West African Frontier Force under the auspices of the British Government’s Colonial Office, the Gold Coast Constabulary was renamed the Gold Coast Regiment in 1901. During the First World War, the regiment created a total of five battalions, all of which participated in the East Africa campaign.
As part of the 2nd (West Africa) Infantry Brigade, the regiment recruited nine battalions and saw action in Kenya’s Northern Frontier District, Italian Somaliland, Abyssinia, and Burma during WWII.
The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) are Ghana’s unified armed forces, which include the Ghana Army, Ghana Navy, and Ghana Air Force.
The President of Ghana, who is also the military commander of the Border Guard Unit, is the Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces (BGU). The Minister of Defense and the Chief of Defense Staff are in charge of the armed forces.
