Having had the release of the breakdown of tranche one cuts to the RAF, it would appear the only RAF Regt personnel up for grabs is 1 x Gp Capt, out of the 21 gp Capts across all branches to go. Given that the RAF Regt have recently (or possibly imminently, but definitely happening) lost half of its operational taskings, ie the Field Sqn at Kandahar, how have they avoided any cuts at all? Now one field Sqn is left at Bastion, something aking to a tick sucking the blood of the Rhino that is the USMC. Its quite amazing to think of the staff influence said Regt must have - when the aircrew that run things eat 170 of their own young but leave in situ the grouping that has lost 50% of its deployed taskings. Oh yes, having stood up the 8th Field Sqn within the last year. Believe me, the maxim now is the only thing that will be left after a nuclear armageddon is cockroaches and RAF Regt.
