The Adjutant-General to the Forces, commonly just referred to as the Adjutant-General (AG), is one of the most senior officers in the British Army. He is in charge of administration, personnel and organisational matters. The Adjutant-General usually holds the rank of General or Lieutenant-General. Despite his administrative role, the Adjutant-General, like most officers above the rank of Major-General, is invariably drawn from one of the combat arms, not from the support corps.

In the late 19th and all of the 20th century the Adjutant-General was the the Second Military Member of the Army Board.[1]

Headquarters Adjutant-General is at the former RAF Upavon, now Trenchard Lines, Upavon, Wiltshire, and will soon be amalgamated with Headquarters Land Command. The two headquarters are to move, probably to the premises at Andover which the Defence Logistics Organisation will vacate, and amalgamate by 2008/2009. Headquarters Adjutant-General ceased to exist on 1 April 2008, and it is now known as HQ LF (Headquarters Land Forces).

In December 2009 it was announced that the responsibilities of the Commander Regional Forces (i.e. responsibility for support) would be subsumed within those of the Adjutant-General to the Forces who henceforth would take responsibility for both personnel and support.[2]
