Cornwall's main TA unit is being moved to Devon.

Six Rifles is currently based in Truro.

It will head up to Plymouth in the next three years as part of a shake-up which aims to boost numbers and support for troops.

Commanding Officer of Six Rifles Neville Holmes said: "There are still opportunities for those in the Reserve in Cornwall both through Bodmin and indeed some elements will remain in Truro. Those people who want to come and serve as Riflemen will be able to travel if they so wish. The opportunity to serve in a new integrated now much more credible reserve force is a bonus.

He admits though that it could put some people off joining: "It's going to have an impact I think regimentally by way of our footprint in Cornwall but I am confident we can retain the good relationship we have with the people of Cornwall. We'll still be training in and around Cornwall. We have clearly a very good regimental county office and we will continue to support the army cadet force."
