Recent Operations These boards should cover most of the British Army's recent operational deployments including Northern Ireland (Op BANNER), Iraq (Op GRANBY and Op TELIC), Former Yugoslavia (lots!) and of course the Falkland Islands (Op CORPORATE). Afghanistan (Op HERRICK) will be arriving here soon!

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.
