    I've completely lost track of what Regiments are left in the Modern British Army.

    Can anyone post a complete list of what Infantry & Cavalry Regiments there are.

    It's a query I ought to know, isn't it?

    I may be wrong here but I would guess the London Regt was a amalgamation of Regt's like the London Scottish in previous SDR's (Cut Backs). The same has happened to other regular regiments like the forming of the Yorkshire Regiment. I was serving with the PWO's in 2004 and I've never seen so many grown men cry when it was annouced they were merging with the Dukes and Howards.

    The HAC are a Regt in there own right as far as I am aware. I've been on a few courses with guys wearing that cap badge have turned up. They seemed quite proud of their badge but a bit geeking for me to go on the lash with :)

    I think there is a independent Engineer unit too like the HAC that is TA with their own cap badge. I beleive they still survive MoD cut backs because they have the backing of city type gents with vast amounts of cash.............Almost a private army :)
