There is a view as to whether Inf Bns should continue to Arms Plot or not. The cost of moving Bns every 2 to 5 years is considerable. Some believe that Inf Bns should reside within their county boundaries, and those that do not have them agree to serve abroad. Overseas exercises and operational tours would continue irrespective and Offrs and some SNCOs could be posted to other Bns within their Inf Division to gain Armd Inf or Mech experience. Perceived advantages of Arms Plotting are: - Recruiting advantage to serve in a variety of places. - A varied life and trained in multi skilling (Mech/Armd Inf or Lt Role Bn). - Consolidation of unit identity when serving abroad. - Reduces boredom. Perceived disadvantages are: - Cost of moving and retraining - money could be better spent on eqpt, welfare or pay. - Turbulence especially for marrieds, schooling etc. - Unable to buy a house in the local area or wife to continue her career locally. - Lack of county identity for recruiting and for TA and ACF linkage. - Becoming stale in a particular role.
