Black Asian British Army

Equality and diversity are issues for many British soldiers today. Britain's army has represented one of the world's most diverse workforces, relying on black and Asian soldiers in peace and in adversity. Fighting for and with Britain, their stories are often forgotten or untold. This website brings together those stories and experiences to reveal a new history of our Army. But that history is still incomplete. Your own stories or those of families and friends who have served in the Army, can help to complete it.
