I'm hearing conflicting stories from RR posters and others in a position to know. I'm not in a position to read the briefing for myself until next week. I'm just going easy on the generation of bile for now for the sake of the credibility of this site, not the comfort of the MoD.
Mothball rumours were circulating in Fleet back in June/July. Nothing will surprise me.
Now, CCF expansion? Good idea. American kids can save the US from bad guys, so ours can save the UK. At least it keeps some kids out of trouble and points them in the direction of the Armed Forces. Don't mock it.
