Ministry of Defence - Government Department


Ministry of Defence - provide the defence capabilities needed


The objectives of the Ministry of Defence

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has only existed in its present form since 1971 - but its predecessors go back to the times of Henry VII in the 16th century.

MOD Origins
That the MOD can seem complex and confusing is partly attributable to the variety of tasks they undertake, but another reason lies in the Department’s origins. Today’s MOD is a fusion of old ministries: from 1946 to 1964 there were five Departments of State doing what the unified MOD does now: the Admiralty, the War Office, the Air Ministry, the Ministry of Aviation and the Ministry of Defence itself. In 1964 the first three and the MOD were amalgamated, and the defence functions of the Ministry of Aviation Supply (as it had by then become) were absorbed in 1971, when the MOD took over responsibility for supplying military aircraft and guided weapons.
