As an ageing Jock this is a sad sad day.
As an ageing Brit I agree with you. So many of my old barracks have closed, with the Army at only 80,000. Royal Marines Eastney, Browndown, HMS Vernon, HMS Hornet, HMS Daedalus (shore establishments), RN Hospital Haslar - all closed. I thought that with BAOR Germany some units would keep some of these places open.
I have worked with the Black Watch in the past and have huge respect for their history.
