Very reassuring to learn that we will soon have 5 Divisions (assuming that's what he means by divion?) so all the rumours about redundancies have clearly been exaggerated.

Not so much chocolate soldier as chocolate fire-guard. He sounds like he's fairly close to the top within Head Office.

I see now, Bgd is Brigade.......Very good!

& a Divison is like a Regiment with extra Platoons, is it?

From what I understand, after current spending cuts, future UK "divisions" will be more like light infantry battalions, with - if they are lucky - an attached platoon or two of specialists. These would comprise important backup such as:
artillery support (a chap with a radio to the nearest US unit);
armoured recce (two chaps wearing lots of body armour in a fast car);
engineers (several chaps with hammers and nails);
field barber shop (a chap with scissors and another chap with a mirror); and
combat bath 'n shower section (chap with a hose).

There again, thinks could be worse. For that - look at the current state of the RN....
