Please help a fat civvy knacker. Im going to write to my MP to complain but Im not sure whats most wrong about the 'review'. The CDS in The Times was very smooth. I can see that people are upset but what is the biggest issue? Losing four battalions seems mad when there are so many tasks but there are 25,000 soldiers in Germany. So is that the problem? Losing the regimental structure seems mad but as I understand it arms plotting means that everyone in the unit moves to a new location and role every few years. So why not have some stability in location? A large-large regiment for Scotland would lose the local cohesion of The Argylls etc but dont they all get topped up from other units when they are deployed anyway? Am I just being romantic about the history? And what about the Scots Greys/Dragoon Guards? They look likely to continue as does the Scots Guards, so where is the consistency? Honest enquiry folks what is the thing to feature in my letters? I can justify complaining to three Scottish MPs. And I want to complain because I know they are telling lies.
