Independent all-ranks staff association for regular, reserve and veteran UK armed forces personnel

CGS on The British Army Beyond Afghanistan

The Chief of the General Staff, General Sir Peter Wall, says that never again will British troops be deployed in operations like Afghanistan. There is neither the political appetite, nor the money.

Instead, they will be involved in more limited counter-terrorism operations, in cooperation with intelligence agencies and indigenous forces.


The professional head of the Army addressed the prestigious International Institute for Strategic Studies (IIIS) on Tuesday, 31 January 2012.
