This involved limiting the army to 12,000 men but organised in a way that would make rapid expansion possible. It was stressed that, while it would remain an autonomous force, it would have to be able to co-operate in any emergency with Britain’s armed services. 75 Training and equipment suffered badly. So, too, did recruitment which was not helped by the fact that Free State citizens could still enlist in Ulster-based regiments which had been kept in being at the end of 1921 while several other famous Irish regiments had been disbanded.
