My old Sqn is being shut down. Its had a long life as it was formed in Sheffield (8/11/1860) and so it has a lot of mess silver (more than it's current regiment). My understanding is this will be returned to the donor or will be sent onto the corps for safe keeping - i.e. it wouldn't go to the new regiment or squadron (sqn doesn't have a mess/club). As the TA cull is hitting many old sqn's and the corps will obviously make a windfall in silver. Also what's the rule about a regiment disbanding and one of its Sqn staying - do they get the silver (my 1st sentence would indicate the Sqn gets the silver - as it's happened previously) Do rules or precedence still exist for for numbering Sqns? i.e. a newbie unit (1939+) remains at the expense of an historical part of the corps? Similar question about troops, I read in Cliff Lord/Graham Watson's book on the corps that troop titles are issued in series e.g. for TA 700->799 trunk, 800->899 comcen & 900-999 originally WRAC troops (roles not exactly correct). So names like X/Y/Z, old sqn no. or 'Rugby' troop doesn't fall in with corps guidelines. Thanks.
