With the continual modernisation and cost cutting of the Armed Forces is it about time to disband the RFCAs? We now supposedly have a one concept Army and RFCAs are surely a largely superfluous organisation employing a large number of people in jobs that could be carried out within Regional Brigades with a small increase of staff. The real estate occupied by the 14 RFCAs alone must be worth millions. They have their owm Property Management organisation which completely duplicates the one for Regular forces accommodation and infrastructure. Their accounts department could be run from the Regional Brigade with perhaps a small increase in Civilian staff. A Reserve Forces and Cadets liaison officer could be appointed within Regional Bdes as a focal point for TA and Cadet matters. I have been told it would take an act of parliament to do so. This surely wouldn't be a problem if there were huge saving to be made.
