  1. The establishment data is a single service estimate and reflects the role of the units as under Army 2020.
  2. Current strengths have been provided by Defence Statistics and have been rounded to 10 for presentational purposes; numbers ending in "5" have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to prevent systematic bias.
  3. Regimental duty is defined as personnel serving in a regimental unit.
  4. Establishment and strength data do not include attached personnel from other arms and corps. Nor do they include personnel at extra regimental employment in posts away from their parent unit.
