Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia[edit]

The two British enclaves in the Republic of Cyprus act as platforms for the projection of British military assets in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East.[10] The enclaves serve as centres for regional communications monitoring from the eastern Mediterranean through the Middle East to Iran. [11][12] Facilities within the retained areas also support British military activities on retained sites in the Republic of Cyprus and provide unique training opportunities. [13]

Brunei[edit]

Around 2000 Army personnel, largely from the 1st Battalion Royal Gurkha Rifles, are stationed in Brunei (Britain's largest remaining east of Suez deployment).[20] Medicine Lines, Tuker Lines and Scout Base are close to the town of Seria whilst Sittang Camp's more isolated placement in Tutong District reflects its role as a Jungle Training Centre.[21]

Cyprus[edit]

In addition to the Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, the 1960 Treaty of Establishment between the United Kingdom and the Republic of Cyprus granted the UK the right to permanently make use of 40 further sites on the island for military purposes.[23] [24]

They are operationally distinct from British Forces Cyprus[28]

Germany[edit]

In 2010 approximately 25,000 British soldiers were permanently based in western Germany, a legacy of WWII and the Cold War. Facilities in Germany are no longer strategically useful, therefore British Forces began withdrawing from Germany in 2010; in 2015 21,500 troops remained in the country. [29] The deployment will have been phased out by 2020, although concentrations of installations and troops in the Paderborn / Bielefeld / Gütersloh area and at Mansergh Barracks will remain until late in the decade.
