Just learned that one of the decision makers on disbanding these regiments is visiting 2RRF (one of the regiments being disbanded) tomorrow in Celle,
Germany... He is expecting a march past... The boys are going to *ahem* give him something else..
Did anything happen here? I couldn't find anything mentioned online.

I'm not sure why you would make such a statement?

I don't understand your statement above.
Also, despite the tongue-in-cheek tone, I'm very much in sympathy
Extraliens' position on G4S. I know there are those currently serving who are unhappy with the Olympic security situation (although it seems that
the majority of the gripes stem from personal grievances as opposed to the wider social implications) but it appears to me the army will be going in
there to cover the shortcomings of current govt. in regards to the increasing cuts/privatisation of the police. Any whispering of a public display of
dissent over this action, or will the army be quiet and do their part in helping to pull the wool over the eyes of the public?
(Just a little FYI: To any who may be about to offer the army involved in politics argument in reference to the last point; considering the
topic here I think that ship has sailed.)
