Does anybody know the true amount of soldiers required to be held by a country in order for it to be called an Army? For example....... If it were 100,000, then we here in the UK would be perilously close to no longer having an Army. The next question therefore would be "what do you call a group of soldiers of less than 100,000?" I have been informed that we would then have a Militia...... Anyone care to shed any truth to the above and if we should get a further cut will the Sec Of Def then rename us the British Militia? Maybe this is why the cuts stopped when we reached 102,000!!
