The newest division of the British Army has just received its first batch of recruits.
The all new – ‘Scottish, Welsh and Irish’ brings together all of the Army's Celtic regiments under one division.
In last December’s Army 2020 ‘Refine Brief’ it was announced that – with the creation of the new specialised infantry capability - the infantry structure would be reduced from seven divisions to six.
The changes saw The Royal Regiment of Scotland, the Royal Welsh Regiment and the Royal Irish Regiment being grouped together into a single administrative entity - The Scottish, Welsh and Irish Division.
The administrative changes in structure were likely of little significance to the crowd who were simply proud to see their nearest and dearest pass out.
With their training as infantrymen complete, families welcomed their new servicemen with open arms as they begin their new careers in the British Army’s newest division.
