HQ Land Command

HQ Land Forces (or 'HQ Land') is a military command and part of the structure of the modern British Army. It was Land Command from 1 April 1995 to 1 April 2008. After that date, HQ Land, with elements of HQ Adjutant-General, became HQ Land Forces.

Land Command assumed control of almost all British Army combat and combat support troops on 1 April 1995. Three major exceptions were British Forces Cyprus, the Falkland Islands, and Northern Ireland. In the last of those, the General Officer commanding reports to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland for operations in support of the civil power.
