List of British generals and brigadiers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of people who have held general officer rank or the rank of brigadier (together now recognized as starred officers) in the British Army, Royal Marines, British Indian Army or other British military force since the Acts of Union 1707.

See also Category:British generals – note that a "Brigadier" is not classed as a "general" in the British Army, despite being a NATO 1-star equivalent rank.[1] Prior to the mid to late-1990s, British ranks used a hyphen.

Hence, in the lists below:

  • 1* = Brigadier-general/Brigadier
  • 2* = Major-general (prior to 1990s)/Major general (mid-1990s onwards)
  • 3* = Lieutenant-general (prior to 1990s)/Lieutenant general (mid-1990s onwards)
  • 4* = General
  • 5* = Field marshal

(dates after the name are birth and death)
