Marching Orders?

Today's Daily Telegraph reported that the British Army is so understaffed that they have put their military bands on standby to replace soldiers in Cyprus. Understandably, some of the bandsmen are concerned, due in no small part to the fact that, evidently, once they finish their basic training, they don't keep up their soldiering training.

So I'm sure it was only a coincidence that Army officials were quoted as such:
Whitehall officials indicated that deploying the bandsmen to Cyprus "remained a possibility" but added that the Army "had to be flexible during a period of high operational tempo".
