As at 1 January 2024, there were 4450 UK Armed Forces Service personnel stationed at RAF Brize Norton.

Please note, UK Forces Service Personnel comprises UK Regular Forces, Gurkhas, Military Provost Guard Service (MPGS), Locally Engaged Personnel , Volunteer Reserve, Serving Regular Reserve, Sponsored Reserve, and Full-Time Reserve Service (FTRS) of unknown origin. University Air Squadron Officer Cadets are excluded. The figure includes trained and untrained personnel.

The figure includes Reserve personnel and is therefore an estimate because the stationed location data for Reserves has not been fully verified.

The figure has been rounded to the nearest 10. However, numbers ending in "5" have been rounded to the nearest 20 to prevent systematic bias.

Data has been provided as at 1 January 2024 to align with published Quarterly Service Personnel Statistics.
