One for those of a speculative nature: Are there any particular regiments that you'd really like to see "reborn" ? What are the chances of this ? Pretty slim I guess baring world war 4 (I think we all know how ww3 would end - and probably wouldn't need "big" armies in regiments much there)) At the National Army Museum there's a growing list of "famous" British army units here: http://www.nam.ac.uk/research/famous-units There's also the old "(un) reliable wiki" with all the usual caveats (it's - buyer-beware ) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_British_Army_regiments With even one for their nicknames here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_nicknames_of_British_Army_regiments In the UK at least have some of these regiments gone the way of the old counties and county borders (although there's always hope there on that!) Do they (Regiments) even make sense any more? It is a shame though to lose all those traditions and tradition is still something that the UK does well, but is it too late? How well do the amalgamated ones work? Better or less well? I am also interested in how this all works further abroad. Lot of questions I know, but pick those you like best! All the best, Rm.
