Two Armed Services 'Could Merge' In 10 Years

The Chief of Defence Staff has said it is "plausible" that two of the Armed Services could merge within the next 10 years.
Sir Jock Stirrup, who is the professional head of the Armed Forces, said one service could disappear to save money.

Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth told Sky News he does not personally think it will happen, but he is "happy for people to discuss it."

So why only 2 services to merge? Why not all three? We should look around for an organisation that operates land, air and sea assets is numbered in the 100s of thousands of people and has global capability. I give you - the United States Navy and its Marines

And remember the british Army is a projectile to be fired by the Navy

RAF to divide most likely. FJ and heavy lift to RN, SH to Army - altho I'm being very simplistic.

A whole rump of Crab middle rank 'OC Stn Diversity Flt' should be getting really worried - they'll hate being Army. :)

Pay really really close attention to Red Bob's 'No Nation Can Act Alone' doctrine however...
