Army ; ~82.000
RAF ; ~35.000
Navy ; ~30.000

So about ~147.000 active personnels in 2020.

The surplus/deficit against the number of personnels needed is at -4.3% (In February 2015 it was at -4.1% this means that over the years the full trained strenght is decreasing and the deficit increasing.)

This means overall that the British Armed Forces are well below what it was planned.

These are amazingly beautiful pictures. They always looked great in movies and magazines, but these up-close and personal ones give a much clearer idea of how massive and phenomenal they are.
