Notes:

  1. The table above shows outflow based on where soldiers joined the Army, which is not necessarily where they left from. Junior Entry infantry soldiers who receive Phase One training at Harrogate move on to the Infantry Training Centre at Catterick to complete their Phase Two training

  1. The figures are for Regular Army only and therefore exclude Gurkhas, Full Time Reserve Service and Mobilised Reserves.

  1. Personnel who have left the Army more than once in the last four financial years will be counted each time they left in the table above. Their training establishment on enlistment may vary each time they joined the Army.

  1. For presentation purpose, figures have been rounded to 10; numbers ending in 5 have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to prevent systematic bias. Totals and sub-totals have been rounded separately and so may not appear to be the sum of their parts.
