    GLOUCESTER, U.K. - The Queen today visited Defence Business Services (DBS) and the Headquarters of NATO’s Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (HQ ARRC) at Imjin Barracks, Gloucester. During her visit to Innsworth House on the base, Her Majesty also opened a new briefing room at the MOD’s Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre (JCCC) and MOD Medal Office (MODMO).

    The Queen continued on to visit The Headquarters of the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps, or ARRC as it is known, which is also based at Imjin Barracks.

    Her Majesty greeted ARRC personnel and their families before joining DBS and ARRC personnel for lunch at the ARRC officer’s mess.

    The Commander of the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps, Lt. Gen. Tim Evans CBE DSO, "It has been a tremendous honour and privilege to host Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth at Imjin Barracks today and we are very grateful to the Lord Lieutenant, Dame Janet Trotter, for giving us this opportunity. During her visit to the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps she met the senior national representatives of the twenty countries represented in the HQ and had lunch with the senior leadership. She also had the chance to meet some of our families, a number of local school children with their teachers and charity workers who have supported the local community. Today’s visit was a real highlight of the year and one we will remember with great affection."
