Defence of the Realm – Army

The British Army

In 1707 the regiments that made up the Army and Navy of Scotland were absorbed in to their English counterparts and the British Army was formed. The full-time element of the British Army is referred to as the Regular Army and has been since the creation of the reservist Territorial Force in 1908. Throughout its history, the British Army has seen action in a number of major wars involving the world’s great powers, including the Seven Years’ War, the Napoleonic Wars, the Crimean War, the First World War and Second World War.
