I hear there thinking of merging the Royal Marines and the Parachute Regiment to form the "Royal Marines Parachute Commando Regiment". Can anyone shed a bit more light on this? I haven't quite decided whether or not I like the sound of it or not. Apparently by merging sub special forces regiments they will create a "elite hybrid soldier" that would surpass that of the existing Marines and Paras. Sound alright but it would be a shame to lose the corps history and uniquness.
