Army Newsletter

The British Army’s newsletter has been re-introduced as part of our efforts to improve communications across the Army. IN FRONT is presented in a modern, smart phone compatible format so that it can be shared widely and to make the information more accessible. All ranks are encouraged to read it and follow the links to dip into areas of particular interest. 

It can be hard to keep pace with the amount of change going on and with everything the Army is doing around the world. ‘In Front’ together with the Army Core Script enables the Army to speak with a more unified voice and ensures that serving personnel and the wider Army community are informed of current activity and the latest developments.
