Heard deputy chief of defence staff talking recently about there being insufficient money for all the things they'd like to provide (kit, salary, housing etc). No new news here, except I have the solution! Seems to me that we've got 3 service HQs, more admirals that we have ships and loads of air marshals kicking their heels. If we chopped a service, we could save a packet and spend the money where it's needed and the RAF seems a likely target. Aircrew- army air corps. RAF Regt- I don't seem that defence of an airfield is much different from any other role the infantry perform. Aircraft techies- REME Suppliers- RLC I don't know every trade in the RAF but I'm sure we can fit the buggers into the army somewhere (I know it means lowering the standard, depleting the genepool etc but we'll help them raise their game). We could save a fortune and spend it on improving the quality of life and kit we have to work with. What do you think? PS- dunno what to do with the navy, seems to me they're not really busy nowadays.
