TA shake up includes name change


The Defence Secretary has confirmed that he would like to change the name of the Territorial Army to the "Army Reserve" as part of changes to the unit.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, Philip Hammond said they will recruit more reservists.

He added troops in the TA will be given normal army uniforms and equipment to bring them in line with the regular army.
