Boards by Arm / Service (roughly)
The British Army isn't really a single organisation but a loosely allied group of warring tribes united by our dislike of the Royal Air Force. Somewhere in this list you should be able to find a board for your cap badge, Regiment or Corps. For the sake of completeness we've also included the Royal Navy/Royal Marines and (spit) Royal Air Force. There is even room for the Territorial Army (TA), University Officer Training Corps (UOTC) and Army/Combined Cadet Force.

1. It's one Army, but I'm told that a separate board is wanted.
2. Regulars, don't bait the TA (sorry Army Reserve) ; we've heard it all before and it's boring.
