Soldiers from Bicester’s 23 Pioneer Regiment are due to be included in a third round of redundancies announced by the MoD last week.

Up to 5,300 soldiers around the country will be involved in this tranche of redundancies.

The first 70 job losses at 23 Pioneer Regiment were announced in October last year, and around 400 regiment members are facing redundancy by next year, when the regiment will disband.

The Army says some soldiers will be exempt from compulsory redundancy, including those on combat operations or recovering from combat operations.
