Have been shit on big style, I know this is a navy site but it goes to show the underhand way our govt treat the armed forces. The Border Regt is being abolished & the lads are being amalgamated into the Duke of Lancashire Regt. Some of the troops have just come back from Iraq after 6 months. The service has counted for nothing as the new regt starts from scratch & all previous service counts for nothing & they are being redeployed back to Iraq under the guise of the new Regt & having to do more tours in Iraq. I can see several pissed off pongos jacking in, stretching the army further, all due to cost cutting reducing the number of battalions. I believe there are more regiments going to be affected the same way.
