Well chaps I am sorry but I need to talk about this..............I think the affiliations we have as independent units et al are costly, inefficient and encourage in some cases a tad of waltiness. The walty stuff is not my point, however it would solve many problems if we all wore a generic beret ,badge,stable belts, 2's, mess dress, rank slides etc we could then get on with the job in hand without bothering with some of the shit regimental traditions and other codswallop that is not relevent being applied to the cadets- our cadets in our sector are now being encouraged to refer to themselves as riflemen and this has to be endorsed by staff. well they can bollocks because they are most certainly not riflemen and this sort of thing amongst others wouldn't happen if were a single badged organisation............the navy and the air force ATC and SCC do well and engender respect so why don't we.!!? If any one from LAND is bored enough to read this can you give us any reasoning behind why not? it'll be one army soon anyway so why not? C'mon all you crusties ,diehards and regimental groupies why shouldn't it be one badge for one ACF??????
