There are currently some 590 members of the British forces at all ranks appointed to tasks with foreign armed forces and Governments. I have placed a spreadsheet showing these personnel by country, task and rank in the Library of the House. These appointments reflect the close collaboration we enjoy with key allies and support defence engagement and upstream capacity building. The list does not include those who remain within the direct UK national chain of command.
