I heard a nasty rumour that 29 Cdo Regt is to lose the Commando role next year. Hopefully this is unsubstantiated. Can anyone shed any light on it?
FieldDiscipline said:Do 29 not provide Naval Gunfire Observers? Point taken with the airborne gunners. They'll be soooo chuffed.
kayak8889 said:It won't happen unless the goverment chuck 3 cdo out of plymouth. Although Devonport dockyard is struggling with obtaining goverment contracts, and is looking at possible future closures since Gordon Browns constituancy in strathcylde just happens to be getting these contracts-what a suprise.
148 battery are forward observers which can deploy on ship,but are separate from 29 cdo, as they're now based with boys in Poole and not plymouth with kirkee and alma batterys.
