John G what are you on about? "find people a job" because we want to kep cap badges very funny.
But you are right we dont have a R Surry Regt etc but if you want to join the YORKS you might come from Yorkshire, I take it your in the Infantry to understand why having pride in your cap badge means nothing?
Would that make those not born in Yorkshire any less part of the Regt they joined, any less likely to progress, etc, or likely to have any less pride in their unit?
I think not, but obviously if you know better I'm open to your thoughts.
Can you tell me all about this three dacades of evidence that " beyond all resonable doubt" Britains Regimental system has no foundation, I must of mist that piece of work.
Gen Jackson absalutly did propose that 1 PARA would take on the role of SFSG, which in time be the basis of a Ranger type Unit that selects its soldiers tri service for that specific task.
. As for where they would come from, I would suggest the other 29 Battalions, were not talking about SAS that has a very low ratio for those getting through.
