We respect the individual with shared bonds, shared values, openness and honesty.
Within the British Army we have different levels of command made up of varying units.

Combined arms unit
Captain, Lieutenant or Second Lieutenant
2 fire teams
The more diverse a team is, the greater the pool of skills available, and leaders must harness this diversity in order to maximise talent in support of operational effectiveness.
A climate of inclusivity welcomes all individuals to the team, regardless of their background and experience, allowing them to realise their value and encourage maximum contribution to the team.
To command the British Army is the highest honour and I am privileged to serve the best soldiers in the world. General Mark Carleton-Smith, Chief of the General Staff
It’s vital that the Army is a true representation of the society it exists to defend. The society we recruit from is increasingly diverse which enriches the contribution individuals can make throughout their Army Service.
We are unified by the common bonds of teamwork, and a clear set of values and standards. This allows us to face increasingly complex challenges worldwide.
