When the regiments all merge over the next couple of years, what will happen to the Div bands? At the moment, the PoW Div has 2 (Clive & Lucknow - not sure about other divs), and with the Div shrinking to 2 large regts (Mercian and Welsh) will the bands align themselves 1 per regt or will they retain their current autonomy/lack of accountability?

I posted this in the RHQ by mistake a while ago:

The following decisions have been made about CAMus and will be promulgated shortly:

- RA and Gds bands will remain 49 strong
- All other bands will remain 35 strong
- There will be a reduction in the number of bands from 13 to 7 across the RAC and Inf:

RAC [4 to 2]
- The Light Cavalry Band (formerly Hussars & Light Dragoons and the Royal Lancers)
- The Heavy Cavalry & Cambrai Band (formerly the Band of the Dragoon Guards and the RTR Cambrai Band)

Inf [9 to 5]
- The Regimental Bnd of The Royal Regiment of Scotland (formerly the Highland and Lowland Bands)
- The Minden Band of The Queen's Division (formerly the Minden and Normandy Bands)
- The Band of The King's Division (formerly the Waterloo and Normandy Bands)
- The Band of The Prince of Wales's Division (formerly the Clive and Lucknow Bands)
- The Band of The Royal Irish Regiment will remain unchanged

No further decision has been promulgated about the intended redundancies for 06.
