Mail On Sunday: "Britain's New Model Army"

Discussion in 'Strategic Defence & Spending Review (SDSR)' started by soleil, Nov 12, 2012.

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. Progress, that and we don't need 100,000's of troops to maintain a long dead empire. As defence forces go were quite big compared to our land mass.
  2. It was in the 'Mail' and I thought it was the latest cunning plan to cover up the manpower shortages in seven years time.............................
  3. But not compared to our population or our resources.

  4. Is that the freebie cut out section, with a build your own tank and cut our soldiers!
  5. What a shit graphic that really is. Did they get some old boy to sketch it out on a beer mat after a few sherbets yesterday?
  6. Plus they've got the Household Cavalry wrong as they have it, as it is still 2 seperate regiments with 2 seprate capbadges, uniforms and traditions. They make it look like one capbadge etc.
  7. Tosser failed to include the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles)!
  8. A regiment named after CMD. The arrogant bastard.
  9. We have less horses and bayonets than we did 100 years ago as well.
    As someone a bit better paid than me said not so long ago.
  10. or the Cat and Cabbage regiment...
  11. and then there is that ancient unchanged regiment The SRR....

  12. Yes in comparison with other Northen European Countries 6.7 p/1000 Capita compared to an average of 4/1000 Capita. So as I said for a DEFENCE force.
