The Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC) history began in 1815 when its antecedent – ‘the 1st (British) Corps’ – had its weight thrown against Napoleon’s forces by the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. Throughout history, the Corps has played a key role in international events; WWI, WWII, the Cold War, Bosnia, Kosovo, the formation of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan in 2006 and as ISAF Joint Command in 2011. They are the UK’s largest deployable Land HQ. It remains the UK’s contribution to NATO’s High Readiness Force (Land) structure. ARRC’s ‘framework nation’ is the United Kingdom, comprising circa sixty percent of the overall staff, the ARRC is fully multinational in nature and organisation, with twenty-one NATO and Partner Nations overall contributing personnel.
