BAFF welcomes media enquiries on issues relevant to service personnel. We usually have two possible spokesmen available, one normally London-based, and one close to a regional BBC studio with radio and TV 'down the line' facilities, with access also to a regional ITV studio. Other BAFF representatives are available on occasion. If you do not already have contact details for our spokespeople, please use our contact form: see under 'CONTACT' in the top menu.
UPDATE JULY 2015. For media representatives with contact details for Douglas Young, he has now retired from the chairmanship of BAFF after ten years in the post, but is continuing as a member of the BAFF Executive Council for a limited period.
Media representatives are welcome to exchange contact information in advance.
Please note that we cannot put media in touch with individual members, whether serving or retired.
Serving personnel are subject to DIN 2014DIN03-024: Contact with the Media and Communicating in Public or its successors. (BAFF does not fully agree with all aspects of the DIN.)
A list of recent interviews and quotes featuring BAFF is available here: BAFF in the news.
The British Armed Forces Federation (BAFF) is a professional staff association launched in late 2006 by serving and former members of HM Forces. It is totally independent of government and the Ministry of Defence and has no party political affliation.
BAFF spokespeople may offer an informed opinion but will not express an organisational view about national strategic or operational decisions.
BAFF is never a source of "leaks" to the media of information of a genuinely confidential or protected nature.
