Army at war over axing of battalions
Thomas HardingBrig David Paterson says in a letter to Gen Sir Peter Wall, the Chief of the General Staff (CGS), seen by The Daily Telegraph, that the proposed abolition of 2nd Bn Royal Regiment of Fusiliers will not stand up to public scrutiny.
The move will be announced on Thursday as part of a substantial cull of the Army. At least five infantry battalions and a third of the Royal Artillery and Royal Logistic Corps will be cut as the Army loses 12,000 personnel, in addition to the 7,000 recently sacked, and shrinks by a fifth to 82,000 men.
