MPs welcome Honour Guard

Mary Glindon MP and John Baron MP welcome ex-Fusilier Honour Guard to Number 10

The Honour Guard forms part of the continuing campaign to save the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (2RRF), which is due to be disbanded in line with the Government’s planned Army cuts. By the MoD’s own admission, 2RRF was not one of the original five infantry battalions to be cut. But a political decision was taken to axe 2RRF, despite the battalion having an excellent recruitment record, and is especially unjust given more poorly-recruited battalions are being saved.
