1) AlbanyRifles opines that British/Commonwealth Regimental System is inefficient for large-scale armies.
2) Lemontree diagrees with AR by using the Indian Army as an example of a large-scale army still using Regimental System.
3) I, Cactus, point out to Lemontree that Indian Army has modified the Regimental System to a quite different institution.
3.5) After some discussion I pose a question asking about why Indian Army felt it necessary to modify the system after 1962, Lemontree mentioned various administrative problems with the old system.
4) To end this small discussion, I pointed that this same conclusion was the point of divergence between AR and Lemontree. Now we have two large-scale armies, one which has felt it wise to completely abandon Regimental System and another that has mutated it beyond recognition. But essentially we have reached back AR's point (unless Lemontree has more to add).
I have made my point with Lemontree with the example of the Punjab Regiment, I can make it again with half a dozen other Indian regiments that have seen post-1962 expansion. I didn't need to reference it, because I had a pretty good hunch that Lemontree knows exactly what I am talking about. As it turned out, he did know what I was talking about. Since he came to a similar conclusion as the one AlbanyRifles and I held, it was perfectly appropriate to point out that we are back to approaching the point of divergence. It is upto Lemontree to agree if we have reached it or not.
