In the United Kingdom, a Deputy Lieutenant is a military commission and one of several deputies to the Lord Lieutenant of a lieutenancy area. In titles, the post nominal letters DL may be added. Deputy lieutenants are chosen by the local Lord-Lieutenant, to assist them with any of their duties as may be required. They receive their commission only when the appropriate Minister communicates that Her Majesty The Queen does not disapprove of the appointment.  Deputy Lieutenant
