Do not disband 2nd Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers
Responsible department: Ministry of Defence
Ministry of Defence plans to axe historic battalions is unfair on troops, undermines the Army and could threaten future military operations, Brigadier David Paterson, the commander of The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, has warned.
2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, one of the best manned Battalions in the Army was chosen by CGS (Chief of the General Staff) to be disbanded meaning loyal, well trained Fusiliers from this fully manned Battalion are likely to be posted to less successful Battalions that cannot recruit or retain their own troops.

We call on the MoD and the Chief of the General Staff to reconsider these plans and instead support the success and leadership shown by the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers in recruiting, training and retaining loyal soldiers.
