Looking at the graphs for both officer and other-rank numbers it shows a large decrease through the 1980s finally leveling out at 1994/95 onwards. Is that dramatic fall and subsequent stabilisation a result of the end of the Cold War, or are there other factors involved?An excellent find!
What is also interesting is the links across the top giving a breakdown of manning numbers from 1990 to present day.
Very handy for those attending AIB.
At the same time theres a increase in NHS middlemanagement?! I smell a conspiracy!:bigsmile:A swift answer is there has been a large down-sizing of the RAF & Navy, but less so with regard the RM & Army since the cold war as there's been a reappraisal of the strategic defence review.
