first post here so I'm sure this subject has been covered before and probably at length. During the mid/late 80's was lucky enough to spend 4 and a bit years on holiday at RAF Gatow in Berlin.During my time there I played football against many infantry reg's such as Devon and Dorsets,BlackWatch,KOSB,Kings,Irish Guards.RWF,Glosters,1LI and some others I cant remember. What I want to know,as an ex crab, is how the destruction of a lot of these fine old regiments affects the soldiers within them ( if at all ) and how all the various traditions etc are incorporated into the new formations.Things like regimental days,dress,ranks structures. Personally i see the BA,s regimental structure as the key to its success as a military organisation.I would hate to see the army ending up like the US army and have soldiers posted in and out of regiments on an individual basis. PS - Kings were the best at football, RWF at rugby.
