The Royal Welsh ( Who defended Rorke's Drift), The Queen's Royal Lancers, Argyll and Sutherland Highland Regiment and Duke of Wellington's Regiment are among the British Army Regiments to be axed in budget cuts
Shock but no surprises here. I've been very busy so away from my keyboard, I was hoping to post some good news but as is the current trend, there is none. Scottish Regiments were by and large spared, probably to try and smooth things over on the lead up to the referendum. Honestly though, last year saw the butchering of the Royal Navy. Napoleon, Kaiser Bill and Hitler tried and failed to break the Royal Navy's back. But our mate Dave Cameron succeeded in destroying it! This year saw the army have its wrist slashed. The Air Force will be next just you wait.
I can only imagine the sadness that veterans and serving men of these regiments must feel. After fighting for hundreds of years, their proud banners are torn down by some bureaucrat in Whitehall.
I have little doubt that there will be a revival. That day will only come after Britain has been slapped awake, ala 1939.
