Independent staff association for UK forces

British Armed Forces Federation - BAFF - is the unofficial, independent, all-ranks staff association for regular, reserve and former UK forces personnel.

BAFF is completely independent of the Ministry of Defence, and its mission is to represent its members in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, the British Army and the Royal Air Force, including the reserves.

The right of UK service personnel to join and take part in the Federation has already been accepted.
