The Quartermaster-General to the Forces (QMG) is a senior general in the British Army. The post has become symbolic: the Ministry of Defence organisation charts since 2011 have not used the term "Quartermaster-General to the Forces"; they simply refer to "Chief of Materiel (Land)".[1][2][3]

From 1904 the Quartermaster-General to the Forces was the Third Military Member of the Army Board.[4][5]


The Quartermaster-General to the Forces is traditionally responsible for the supply of equipment, provisions and munitions.[6]

In modern use the QMG is the senior General Officer in the army holding a logistics appointment and is currently the Lieutenant General holding the post of Chief of Materiel (Land) (CoM(L)) within Defence Equipment and Support. The (CoM(L)) sits upon the highest committee within the army, the Army Board.
