22 DIVISION HISTORIES

In consideration of operational commitment Security Force Headquarters (Trincomalee) was established in the Naval Dockyard in 1986.With the rapid development of Sri Lanka Army and the operational commitments it was shifted from the Naval Dockyard to the present location, Plantain Point in May 1988 and renamed as 22 Brigade.

However, the Plantain point was occupied by the Artillery Coastal Battery since the period under British’s. Later, Sri Lanka School of Engineers shifted to plantain Point from Feb 1979 onward.
