Then you'd be arguing for keeping the symmetrical brigades paradigm rather than concentrating on creating a heavy brigade and a light brigade which operate somewhat differently once you get above the rifle section.I believe that putting all the active brigades under one command would iron out a lot of the local interpretations of doctrine. And with the regular brigades sorted then those practices could be more easily passed on the geographically local reserve soldiers.
Here's a suggestion for if you want to homogenize the organization, put one each of RCR, PPCLI and R22eR in each brigade.
If you take one battalion and make it bigger, it's still one battalion. Shouldn't one of our aims be to take the 15-20,000 reservists we have and create additional units for the Army by making them viable entities?As to mixing and matching Regs and Reserves...
A Regular Battalion with 3 rifle coys and a CS coy. In other words a battalion able to function as an entity tonight.
To that Battalion add 3 Reserve rifle coy combat teams that are expected to field a 4th rifle coy and CS augmentees tonight and replacements in the near future.
Just make the administrative battalion bigger.
What exactly is it that you are trying to achieve?
