Alex Salmond reveals vision for Scottish armed forces - Politics - Scotsman.com

Big Alex wants to take the Scots Guards, Royal Regiment of Scotland and the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards.

I would have figured, even in an extreme case, that those who wished would be allowed to leave the British Army to join the Scottish Defence Forces, not handing over entire regiments to what would be a foreign army?

He also wants Faslane closed, with all the nuclear capabilities removed (a huge logistical and financial commitment that might take 10 years) but Scotland should not have to pay a penny of the removal costs?

Just one of the many problems is that transferees will want to be assured of their pension rights! The only real solution is for Scotland to recruit what it really needs (as a future piddling excrescence of the European SSR and terminally infected with left-wing pacifism I can hardly believe it will want to pay much of an infantry force, or much else for that matter).
