British troops leave Germany



Philip Hammond : UK defence secretary
Britain has maintained a continuous military presence in Germany since World War II. The last remaining army bases are expected to be closed in 2019. Around 15,000 troops had left in 2016; the remaining 4,500 are expected to be brought back in 2019, closing an important chapter in the history of both countries.
