Having heard on rumour control that... a) The RAF are desperate to maintain the profile of the RAF Regiment and justify its existence (hmm.. I think there's a thread in that somewhere) they're readying themselves to take over the Jt NBC Recce Regt. Leaving little need for the RTR and RY. b) The RAF are no longer interested in CBRN and Strike Command are considering withdrawing funding - leaving the burden on the RTR and RY. Both sources tapped their noses and spoke of having heard from contacts high up in MoD. Who is right? Not a member of either RTR or RY, but would love to see the RAF with the job. Yes it is valuable, under appreciated role etc. But I want them to do it. Try to swagger, looking hard waving a wand. Go on, I dare you. Camp as Carry on Cavalry. Why am I interested? Because I'd rather like the RY to become FR, really.
