There goes some more history

And no one noticed......and does anyone care?
They could have picked a more tactful day - like 1st April. In real terms it won't make a jot of difference to the role of these battalions, but it seems a shame to further dilute their rich and varied history and achievements.
Two fine Regts are now one. They are just getting on with it but we await the next round of cuts which will come, no doubt just after BLiar has committed us to another war somewhere.

Well done the Welsh lads and Dewi Sant for yesterday.
However, Brigadier Iain Cholerton, Army Commander Wales, a former commanding officer of the Royal Regiment of Wales, has said the merger was "not bad news for Wales or its regiments".

"The Welsh Guards are not affected," he said. "There will be considerable strength through unity for the new regiment for issues such as recruiting, career opportunities and operational deployments.

So no chipping away then, a few year time we might as well do away with the Welch Guards as well.

Cynical me?
I am not surprised: they managed to kill the only Welsh artillery regiment (22RA) without anyone complaining or raising any questions.
