The commanding officer of the Royal Welsh's Second Battalion says losing their First Battalion in the defence cuts is "bad news" for the regiment.
Lieutenant Colonel Chris Parry says the move is not great for the regiment's history or people.
The Royal Welsh are currently training in Canada for their new role as the Army's elite armoured regiment.
Reporter Jordan Davies travelled with them.
