Goodbye Dalriada and Scotia from the RNR

Discussion in 'Royal Naval Reserve (RNR)' started by McGrew, Nov 26, 2013.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. SO - Salmond has made his statement on an independent Scotland:

    It envisages a Scottish defence force increasing over ten years from 7,500 full-time members of the armed forces and 2,500 reserves to 15,000 regular personnel and 5,000 reserves, and also states that doing away with Trident would give an independent Scotland £500 million to spend on conventional weapons.

    What a pickle there would be - kilts as the new uniform, no white ensign, and all sorts of bother.

    I look forward to some lively debate interspersed with the ridiculousness of saying goodbye to Scotia and Dalriada.
  2. £500 million? That's tiny. Woad and spears is all they'll get for that.

  4. I wonder if those RNRs that disagree with the independence thing can come on the books of Calliope as a cross border mercenary force?
