TA Restructuring

#4
It was due 15 Oct, then 15 Dec, then this week. Now who knows?

We know the 14 Inf Bns, that 2 new RE Rgts are being formed etc. We're just waiting on confirmation of Coy locs for the most part.

Well, Tyne-Tees is becoming 5RRF. Makes me wonder why they ditched 6RRF back in 'options for change' in 1997. It'll be nice to have a 'pure' Fusilier TA batallion again - instead of the current hotch-potch of cap badges in the mongrel that is Tyne-Tees!
5 RRF will be a 3 Coy Bn, with 2x RRF and 1x (Durham) LI Coy.

The Fusiliers in London are staying Londons, those in Warwickshire to 4 Mercian. 4 Lancs may even lose it's Fusilier Pl entirely....

In the end, it all comes down to "we've made the decision, and will work out how to justify it some time later on".

Whats happening to the LI in the Yorkies? R all going the REng?


East and west riding is to loose the LI element. As far as i understand the LI will have their own batalion. They also gain a company from the Tyne Teas. There is also rumours or Para engineers starting in the yorkshire area

No - Fusiliers are to remain. They will retain the hackle and move to OPCOM the Manchester company.
yes we are moving, in a sense anyway, to the Manchester Company.Not sure how that is going to change things for us. we stay as we are one MG platoon and one recruiting/training platoon here at Castle Armoury.


shame we cant join 5RRF but at least we remain here at Bury when so many of our friends have been recapbadged. cant complain really

This does appear to be ahotspot on the new orbat. Last time I looked, the salted peanuts were 46 strong but the rifle pls were being asked to scrape by with about 7 men per section. Given the apparent lack of sp for peanut training in the system, some unofficial reallocation will take place methinks.

That said, APnrs are a much underrated sp pl and I think you will have fun.

Restructuring details to be issued at the end of the month - through units and other media. Everyone will allegedly get a chance to see it all.

Up until now our AP platoon has spent most of its time filling in as riflemen for the 2 rifle platoons, generally been ****ed about and unable to get decent AP training, hopefully things have turned the corner now. :(

If your avatar represents your current capbadge then it was your boss who told me about the current difficulties in getting anyone trained -- particularly in the headshed.

A lot of the good training was put together (pre-95) by a pioneer black mafia -- a cartel of pioneer pl comds from PWRR, RGJ, LONDONS and RGBW. Sadly, thanks to greedy gordon, you don't even have the luxury of cooperation. But look on the bright side, if you continually get obstacles put in your way all you need to do is point to the abnormally large pl establishment and ask the obstructor to go figure what CRF is driving at!

Best of luck.

Apparently news is coming out via e.mail and there will be a web site or two to look at to check your unit and the new regulations (?)

You will probably find that many TA Inf Units will begin the 'Mergers' as of 01 Apr 06. There will then be an intrim period until they become the new Units. I know that 3 PWRR, The Londons and the RRV have already begun this process.

The Royal Welsh Regiment becomes the 3rd Battalion The Royal Welsh on March 1st (St. Davids day). Current headdress are RWF, with hackle, for the North Wales coys and RRW for the South Wales coys. New headdress is a beige (PWRR/Guards) coloured beret, 3 Feathers cap badge and a hackle.

RRV are meant to taking control of us on 1st April but Londons not releasing us till 8th April. 8O What fun, two masters at once, roll on the confusion. :lol:
