THE 183 AMERICAN TROOPS DEPLOYED AT SECRET LOCATIONS ACROSS BRITAIN
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) recently told parliament that 11,912 US military personnel are deployed in Britain across seven RAF bases, while 52 are inside the US embassy in London.
But the ministry added that 135 US Department of Defense (DoD) personnel are also permanently based in “multiple” undisclosed locations across the UK.
A further 48 DoD personnel are based at undisclosed locations in London.
These 183 Americans on secret deployments are all part of the US Air Force’s 501st Combat Support Wing, which is headquartered at RAF Alconbury in Cambridgeshire.
Its operations include “support communications, intelligence, and global strike operations, in the European theatre and around the world”.
