As a very former REMF and CCW I'm setting myself up for a battering but it would seem the regimental system is increasingly a handicap rather than an asset to the British Army. I've always understood the justification for the system to be twofold, a tangible benefit of promoting recruitemt and, more intangibly, as something that inculcated group cohesion, ethos, fighting spirit, etc and thus materially contributed to military effectiveness. What has been made public of regimental politicing in the lead up to Army 2020, certainly as far as infantry and RAC are concerned, would suggest that considerations of regiment/capbadge serve to distort any attempt at an objective review of the Army. Has it has it's day? Should it be full steam ahead to a Corps of Infantry and a RAC that is just that?
