The Army is commanded from the MoD via two subsidiary
headquarters and a number of smaller headquarters worldwide.
The following diagram illustrates this
chain-of-command as at mid 2011.
Note: From mid 2009, HQ Land Forces has
been located at Andover in Hampshire, having moved from Wilton near
The Permanent Joint Headquarters (PJHQ) at
Northwood in Middlesex has an important input into command at the
operational level and it is almost certain that any operation with
which the Army is involved will be under the overall command of PJHQ.
