Inf Bns to Disband??

Discussion in 'Infantry' started by TangoZeroAlpha, May 22, 2003.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The NI Joint Declaration sets time limits for when the "final" peace will occur in NI and states that only 5000 troops will be in province. (Normal garrison strength)

    Already the talk is of Op Banner ending. (2005, I hear)

    A total of seventeen Bns(?) are either somewhere in the training to go; are there now; or are just back cycle. So what will happen to these 17(?) Bns if there are only 5000 troops needed? Mergers, disbandments etc.

    Options for Change Mark II,  Watch and Shoot, Watch and Shoot.
  2. Many of these Bns have other tasks and it will ease the overstretch. However, I fear that there may be some sort of peace divended even if it is only a couple of Inf Bns to go. Very sad I know.

    It is far easier to build a case to retain the well recruited Inf Bns.
