After looking on the Army website on the MBT regiments currently employed I noticed that apart from the Scots DGs, the rest all have disjointed recruiting areas. During the SDR was there any consideration into merging regiments geographically as it appears to have happened to the Inf this time round? How much emphasis was there on keeping the historical ties ie. the Hussars, Dragoons etc intact? Nothing more than a passing interest as when I was still in I remember bumping into a QRH SNCO wearing the old style QRIH beret with a broad brummie accent and none too pleased to be doing so.
