1 Rifles

#1
Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but a throwaway comment in one of the other forums suggested that 1 Rifles were to leave their role with 3 Cdo Bde. Is this true and, if it is, what's the new role?

Yes going to 160th Welsh Brigade. It's all over the news.

Thanks for that, something of a shame, their role added a bracing dose of heterosexual charm to an otherwise bi-curious formation.

actually no 3 CDO is already a brigade in a brigade sense. It's 16 A with lacks an infantry battalion
Eh? 4 infantry bns, 5 if you count 4 para who are now part of the brigade too.

Nope. The new structure is (or will soon be) 2 x regular Para Bns, plus 1 x Reserve Para Bn.

Plus of course lots of those really rather useful helicopter thingamybobs.

CGS has declared support to 3 Cdo Bde as discretionary. In his words, Commandos are in a time of plenty, the Army is in a time of famine, and he doesn't intend to beggar the Army to look after the RN's budget. If the RN want a square Bde with a Eng Regt, Arty Regt and Logs Regt they pay for it.

Allegedly.
