Все о чём я написал выше - только сугубо мое личное мнение.
Никому его не навязываю и не рекомендую к нему серьезно относиться!
Так как мое мнение:
1. Субъективно
2. Предвзято
3. Ошибочно
4. Не компетентно

------------------------------------

Некритическое отношение к материалу приводит к совершенно необоснованным выводам.

В вашем варианте почти всё было понятно, но по-частям.Когда части сложились в целое-получилась расшифровка.

Отлично!
Меня, как не сведущего в специфике структуры британской армии, смутила формулировка "Field Company".
Значит, это была ОТДЕЛЬНАЯ рота (1/1) с собственным (территориальным) названием?
Её "особенность" заключается только в "местности формирования"?
Предполагаю, что начинаю задавать уж слишком глупые вопросы ... unsure.gif smile.gif

Ну вот ... опять ответ опережает вопрос biggrin.gif drinks_cheers.gif

А у меня такой приборчик к компьютеру подключен-позволяет читать мысли собеседника. spiteful.gif
Никаких особенностей.Field Company-это просто сапёрная рота.В британской армии в мирное время всегда были и есть регулярные части и территориальные силы(вспомогательные части и резервисты).Эти территориальные силы формируются по территориальному признаку,т.е. по месту нахождения резервистов(только Россия-единственная в мире страна бескомпромиссно придерживающаяся принципа экстерриториальности воинской службы).В случае начала войны из этих резервистов формируют боевые подразделения(в том числе и инженерные) и направляют воевать вместе с регулярными частями..
