"My point is that in the troop merger, if it is to be a merger, you need to be
"especially careful to include the best of both units. You might even request
"assignment of a new unit number. My past experience with unit mergers is that
And a very good point it is! I would say that the new unit number should
contain digits from both of the previous numbers. For instance, if the one
Troop is Troop 705, and the Troop coming in is numbered 856, a number 706, 756,
7056, or even 675 might be appropriate. There again though, whatever is done
should be up to the COMBINED PLC.
I WOULD NOT, however relegate the incomming SPL to ASPL status. There is
nothing wrong with having a co-SPL. It would also give both boys a chance to
get to know the "new" boys (the members of the recieving Troop are new to the
members of the incomming Troop). Also, neither boy would feel that he had lost
his position because of this merger.
