Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, the UK's largest military community
In case no-one noticed, in the reshuffle last week there is one VERY major change to the MOD's Ministerial team. For the first time ever, we have a Minister for Reserves. According to Gov.uk ( https://www.gov.uk/government/minis...-secretary-of-state-and-minister-for-reserves )
He also proudly wears the Territorial Decoration (TD) which makes him one of the first government ministers in a long time who has actually got a medal!
The power of the SAS and Special Boat Service (SBS) to fight terrorism and free hostages will receive a surprise boost today in a plan to invest more than £1 billion in hi-tech military equipment and cyber warfare. Bucking the trend of defence cuts, David Cameron will stress the importance of drones and special forces when he unveils the investment at the Farnborough Airshow.
