Good day to all. I was just wondering if I could ask for some experienced opinion on the matter of army training camps. What with all the recent news about Scottish regiments being amalgamated (or not) and MOD "rationalisation" of assets my local Labour MP has been in the press saying that he has had some success in lobbying Geoff Hoon and was asked to prepare a policy about making Fort George into Scotland's main army training centre with the Highlanders based there. This came after the outcry against plans to make one Scottish super regiment and that Fort George was the army base most surplus requirements north of the border. Since then he has had a press conference with Adam Ingram and a visit to the base but nothing concrete along those lines was announced. It seemed to just be giving that impression. One of the lines that has been used is to make it the "Catterick of the North". All good stuff and no one could criticise it obviously. However I was wondering if anyone could tell me how viable or credible such a suggestion is in the foreseeable future? It's just that the base associated with training in Scotland was Glencorse but this seems to have been downgraded to a Recruit Selection Centre with Army Training moved to Catterick. If any place was to be an army training centre I would have thought the natural place would have been Glencorse. In addition it's also been reported that it's to be upgraded to possibly take three battalions as a base. So I was just wondering if people thought this idea for Fort George was a serious runner or is it a nice aspiration being given the image of being something concrete to string the voters along until the next election?
