    The 8th and 39th infantry brigade the Royal Irish the other military deployments and the 107 brigade name will go.

    In paticular there is concern that the 107 (ulster)brigade once part of the 36th Ulster division,which fought at the somme in 1916 will be lost.

    However it is believed the name change is causing controversy among senior army personel.

    This is another sinister attempt to erode british identity in the province said MLA Michael Copeland.

    The efforts to strip the word Ulster from the army as was done in policing ,must not continue if we are to remain a recognisable group in the United Kingdom.
