The Queen is to visit Leuchars today and rename the base Waterloo Barracks.
It has been reported that she will unveil a plaque naming the base Waterloo Barracks and will meet soldiers who have moved into the former RAF base at Leuchars in Fife.
The army took over control of the base in April with soldiers gradually moving from their base in Germany.
In 2011, then Defence Secretary Liam Fox announced that RAF Leuchars would close, whilst RAF Lossiemouth in Moray would be spared as part of the Strategic Defence and Security Review. The recently formed Typhoon force, which was stood up in March 2011, moved to RAF Lossiemouth in Summer 2014 with the Army expected to take up residence in 2015 onwards.
The Queen is to meet serving soldiers before joining officers for a regimental photograph and a private lunch.
It is expected that the station will be fully manned by Summer 2016 when the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards return from operational training in Canada. There are expected to be around 1,800 military personnel and their families with around 426 of those personnel coming from the Royal Scots DG. The rest of the personnel will be made up from the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and the Royal Military Police.
