GHQ Liaison Regiment, codename “Phantom” was an innovative, special reconnaissance unit, that was formed during World War 2. Their role was to provide real time intelligence about Allied and Axis positions from the battlefront. They operated close to the front line, gaining a crucial overview of battles by listening to the radio traffic generated by units directly involved in and relaying back this information to assist the Commander in overall control to progress the battle.
William (Bill) Jowitt, our relative, served with Phantom from 1941-47.
We have become fascinated by Phantom's story because of this family connection. The Phantom Living History Group aims to further the knowledge and understanding of this unit and share our interest in Phantom by attending events all over the country where we display our collection of vehicles and artifacts.
We are also part of the Northern World War Two Association and the Military Vehicle Trust and are a non-political group whose aim is not to glorify war but to act as a living memorial to honour and respect those who served.
