Raw Recruits in Kingston today

As everyone knows, a significant number of British Army troops have been killed or injured in Iraq and Afghanistan which has left the army somewhat depleted. MOD sources confirmed that the British Army is considering a recruitment drive in Jamaica to help bring its numbers back to full strength.

The Army will require a further 3,300 troops and may call upon Jamaica to help out. They may be slightly short as the entire population of men and women of fighting age and ability is only 3,248 on the Island. Some children may be used as in times of war it is perfectly acceptable to lie about your age.

The new battalion will be known as 'The Rasta Regiment' or 'Ganga girls' and will have their own colours of black, red, yellow and green. Dreadlocks will be permitted as long as they are not below the shoulders. There will be no smoking on parade either. However the Battalion will have its own Marching Steel Band, believed to be the world's first.

The troops are expected to be fully trained and deployed by Christmas

A Ministry of Defence spokesman told In Seine News;

"The Armed Forces are proud to recruit high quality soldiers from countries with close historical ties."
