COMMAND AND ORGANISATION

ARMY CHAIN OF COMMAND


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 Salisbury.

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.
