  1. Great news following D Infs direction that London should have a 2nd infantry Bn to help with CCRF - I hear it on good authority that it will be called the 2nd Bn The London Regiment - Expect an announcement soon.
     
  2. they could make up the numbers from the Reg bn's they are disbanding :(
     
  3. Not baiting you Farrel ( I know that you are bigger than me!! ) but will this be a brand new one or a split along an obvious line?
     
  4. I hate to disappoint you Bravo, but each Bn will have a Jacket company - good/bad depending on your point of view
     
  5. thanks for letting me know

    BB
     
  6. Can't do that, that'll be reserved for a regular formation - 4/5 RGJ(V) more likely
     
  7. I can see this turning into a huge "bring back 4 RGJ" thing.....
     
  8. It already has.

    Good of the Jocks to suggest it

    :lol:
     
  9. Well, it would make the drill on parades a lot simpler
     
  10. We get to the NAAFI first.....
     
  11. More RGJ? Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.... :lol: London needs more squaddies though.. and more TA centres!
     
  12. TAC's in London wont they be too expensive. Anyway my bugle used to be bigger than yours!
     
  13. Resurrecting 4 RGJ would be an admission that they were wrong to disband it in the first place, so I don't think it will happen.

    Given LONDONS have six rifle coys at the moment anyway, what advantage will a 2nd Bn give, apart from an extra 100 LSNs in a new HQ Coy.
     
  14. Bring back 10 PARA.
