The British Army in Germany

With the announcement of the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) of 2010, the Government stated that it would rebase the British Army from Germany to the UK by 2020. In-line with this the re-basing has now been completed and the surplus estate is being handed back to the German authorities.
