Mergers

Gordon,

Thanks for the info about the badge. You have confirmed my worst thoughts!

I expect the powers that be think by putting a crown on it it will make it more acceptable.

I will be at the annual Sherwood Forsters and WFR pilgimage at Crich, Derbyshire this Sunday. I will be seeing numerous "influential" people and will take them to task.

Merging of Regiments...

The reason for the contraction and demolition of Regiments, Corps, and the Reduction in the three Services generally, is not to save money... Every Goverment has itís own sacred cows and to feed their proclivities for whatever is their own S/Cís they need to spend ever increasing amounts of our money on them, to the detriment of the armed forces...In this they disregard their first duty, which is the protection of the nations people... The present goverment is idealogically tuned to destroying our biggest asset which is our Loyalty to the Nation State and which is fostered and strengthened in the armed forces...The only loyalty they demand is loyalty to their ideaology and eventually the Presidium which will be set up and based in Brussells...This indoctrinated loyalty will supersede all other loyalties...They are well on their way, with five more years in which to soften us up...Trev.
