I too would hate to see a Regiment of such signifance as this go, but is this speculation, well founded concern, or just fear? I can see why someone would say 2 English 1 Scots, 1 Irish & 1 Welsh means that if we have to cut lets get rid of one of the English ones. I doubt any of us really know. I can see another purely speculative approach being to get rid of line before guards.

Let's wait and see, but I have thought again about selling my Royal Dragoon Guards collection (only missing Officers pouch badge and mess dress collars), MBTs are expensive...
