Regimental system - Recruiting - One More Time!

Hi All,
I raise just one more point regarding recruiting. The British Army has for thousands of years raised recruits from all types of backgrounds, noblemen, peers, professionals and yes - working class guys and girls. Some say that future warfighting will be won be superior technologies, OK, but we still need boots on the ground and the ability to 'Find,Fix, Strike and Exploit'.However, more importantly what binds us together is a 'cap badge' that all are willing to die for! The Regimental system we all joined is being slowly dismantled and for RRF will disappear altogether into history -the current results prove it! This is not scaremongering but fact! Until and when politicians and MoD grown-ups understand that Regimental loyalty cannot be tossed to one side that has taken many battles to achieve. So IMO one pathway to improving recruitment overnight is to re-engage with County Regiments (XX Lancashire Fusiliers) that have a strong county affiliation and bring back the Regimental Recruiting Sgts and re-establish High Street recruiting offices plus remove private recruiting contractors completely. Oh! and bring back 4, 3 and 2 RRF while you are at it! I hope somebody is listening. IMO focusing on the individual is fine but there are much wider structural issues to address much more that flash posters! Les
