Ah, so they do still kick about? Excellent. I knew 79 was disbanded last year.

Well I want to go back into uniform and it would be a job I would do. Any info on them?

I believe they are recruited through Grantham camp, sure the Recruiting Office there would be able to give you the info.

Would that be the recruiting cell that closed last year? I can see that your finger is well and truly on the pulse.

As to 275 Sqn, their future will be announced definitively whenever the FR20 stuff comes out, or so the RHQ cleaner assures me, but given that their Regular bretheren were disbanded, you can see the direction of travel. Alternately, ask OC (OIC?) 275. You may find he already knows, but is still respecting OPSEC.

Binning the reg capability shouldn't automatically indicate a death sentence for the reservist capability. Surely this is exactly the sort of capability that should be kept ticking over in the reserves should we ever need to run a "steel ribbon of freedom" (as in Kosovo) again. (Oh, as well as adding a rail understanding into our regular officer education - perhaps in a long transport cse?)

The regulars understanding how to work with and make the most of the reserve?!?!

Never!

Yes, but it did though didn't it. I feel this is a bit of an 'I told you so' moment.
