A senior Army chief has warned of a fresh wave of redundancies that will wipe out entire battalions and regiments, a leaked letter to commanding officers has revealed. Gen Peter Wall, Chief of the General Staff (CGS), said an additional 5,000 soldiers will be made redundant on top of the 7,000 the Government has already announced. That will lead to an "inevitable" new redundancy programme and the "disbanding" of battalions, he revealed in a letter seen by the Daily Telegraph. But despite this, the RAF Regt still endures. Why don't the Army make a fresh attempt to get rid of them and take over their role - might at least keep a few more soldiers. Perhaps the Army could use a tour protecting the Crabs as an RnR tour?
