Command

Episkopi is the current command center of British Forces Cyprus. The commander of the Sovereign Base Areas/British Forces Cyprus (CBF) is either a Major General or an Air Vice Marshal, alternating every three years transferring the command between the British Army and the Royal Air Force. Consequently, the Deputy British Forces Cyprus (DBFC) is from the opposite service of the commander, either a Brigadier or an Air Commodore.

The current CBF is Air Vice Marshal Richard Lacey and the DCBF is Brigadier David Santa-Ollala.

Episkopi Cantonment is home to the Sovereign Base Areas Administration, the civilian authority in the territory. This branch is commanded by an officer with the one star rank OF-6, similar to that of the DBFC.
