The new TA

#1
So will we continue as before or will follow demands:

i.e. cheap casual labour from the northern UK and ditching yeomanry regiments.

A fundamental change of the territorial ethos

Please elaborate, do you mean the Royal Signals yeomanry or RAC? If its the latter where have you discovered this?

Have you actually read any of the posts made here in the last few years?

Regularly. However, having had a quick dig around the internet I have now realised that some of those Royal Signals regiments being chopped are yeomanrys (Until 5 minutes ago I was only aware of the ICCYs being R sigs yeomanry). I've been away for a few days so have not been keeping up as usual, I just wanted to know if there had been further cuts I wasn't aware of.

Rsigs recruiting ground Northern England, what else - get rid of the yeomanry

Actually the Yeomanry units look quite healthy as far as I can see, certainly they're not being chopped (much) unlike those R Signals units without Yeomanry afflications.

Having a Yeomanry heritage means invariably more people to fight your corner when there is a danger of disbandment, and frankly right now units need all the friends they can get.

so does that mean that 80 signal squadron cheshire YEOMANRY is safe?
No. As part of 33SR it has gone.

Mind you it was never recruited beyond Tp size anyway.

Does this mean we can start a (probably short lived) Yeomanry war, RAC v Sigs?

Cav being best, of course!!

I'd wait and see the results of the next week or two, think downsizing rather than chopped

What I meant is who are, cheap casual northern labour or civies who want to do their bit. Thats what I believe the TA is now, I don't agree with it. I joined the same TA regiment (D Coy 3 WFR) as my Great Grandfather - and take a lot of pride with that. He joined pre 1908 - had 'holidays' in Buxton and Srborough
