UK's 16th Air Assault Brigade changes its badge...
I guess the fashion has swung to the reverse now. Where once it seemed that "modern military forces" were seeking to remake themselves into something new, it now seems that they're trying to re-establish links with the past. The best example? US Marine Corps Special Ops. The World War 2 Marine Raiders happily offered their name to the new unit but the Commandant at the time denied the request. Only when he was heading out the door did he approve it. Now we see the 16 AAB doing the same.
