Personally, what other people think about the TA does not bother me but........... As part of the Future Army Structure would it not be an appropriate time for the TA to undergo a name change? Is it not time that the name reflects what the organization has become, the first choice reserve of the regular army throughout the world. The name 'territorial' still conjures up images of a home guard populated by characters from Dad's Army, waiting in vain for some foreign power to storm our shores before they are allowed to do any real soldering. Given that recruiting numbers are low, would a name change not be beneficial in terms of providing a fresh image for the sake of marketing. Any thoughts as to what the new name could be? The 'British Army Reserve' is accurate but rather short on inspiration.
