Letter to the Torygraph editor today from FM Lord Bramall: generally the letter suports John "The Man" Keegan's excellent article last week. He does however seem to advocate General Jacko's re-organisation. The full letter is interesting, but main bit is as follows: " Single battalion regiments can no longer be held to be economically, administratively and operationally viable, whereas the seven existing larger regiments, of at least two battalions, have provided, for those in them, greater stability, better manning, operational balance and availability, and just as much motivation, inspiration and esprit de corps, in our vital regimental system, as any of the older regiments would have done. The young soldiers want the large regiments as they like them, while for the "old and bold", the pain of parting can be greatly alleviated by the keeping alive of the memories and traditions of the older regiments in thriving regimental associations, clubs and reunions, and, indeed, in the histories and pedigree of the new ones. Admittedly, i am now just a civy and any comments i have on this will be tarred with the "old and bold" statement. Therefore, from youse guys serving - Comments??
