Army to lose whole units under cuts, says Philip Hammond

Whole units of the Army will have to be cut but the regimental system will not be scrapped, says Defence Secretary Philip Hammond.

In a speech to military experts he said the future of the Army will involve "thinking innovatively about how combat service support is provided".

Under the Strategic Defence and Security Review, Army numbers will shrink from 102,000 to 82,000 by 2020.

82,000 ?

Bloody hell! There wil be no armed forces at all the way they are going.

Bear in mind that on the first day of the Battle of the Somme- there were 60,000+ casualities.

That`s been public knowledge for some time now...Nice to see that the regimental system is to stay..There was quite an outcry among the Scottish battalions
