Sir Mark Carleton-Smith KCB CBE ADC Gen., Chief of the General Staff, British Army Maj. Gen. John Mead, NATO’s Allied Rapid Reaction Corps Chief of Staff, and other distinguished visitors, prepare to board a Royal Air Force CH-47 Chinook helicopter at RAF Fairford, England, Nov. 17, 2020, for a flight to South Cerney in in support of NATO Exercise Loyal Leda 2020 (LOLE20). Allied Land Command (LANDCOM) conducted a combat readiness evaluation on the NATO Headquarters Allied Rapid Reaction Corp (ARRC) during LOLE20, which took place at RAF Fairford and South Cerney, England, Nov. 9-19, 2020. This was a complex multi-domain exercise designed to test the war-fighting capabilities of the ARRC in a COVID-19 environment including combat operations. LOLE20 was a key NATO exercise to validate and certify the Gloucester-based ARRC as a NATO war-fighting corps at full operational readiness, capable of commanding up to 120,000 multinational troops across a full spectrum of military operations.
