The Ministry of Defence will set out the number of posts it will cut from the service in order to reduce the size of the Army by a fifth.
An Aldershot based soldier, who was killed in Afghanistan, has been named as Guardsman Jamie Shadrake of the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards.
The Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders are to be cut from a battalion to a public duties company, and move from Canterbury to Edinburgh.
More than 4,000 jobs army jobs are to be axed, it's been announced. The Defence Secretary, Philip Hammond has defended the decision saying it's 'difficult' but necessary.
– Philip Hammond, Defence Secretary
It is with great regret that we have had to make redundancies to deliver the reduction in the size of the armed forces, but unfortunately they were unavoidable due to the size of the defence deficit that this Government inherited.
Although smaller, our armed forces will be more flexible and agile to reflect the challenges of the future with the protection and equipment they need.
They will continue to be the bedrock of our society and provide extremely rewarding and exciting careers for future recruits."
More than 4,000 soldiers have been told they have lost their jobs in the latest round of Army redundancies, the Ministry of Defence has announced.
A total of 4,480 Army personnel have been made redundant in the latest tranche of job losses as the Government tries to reduce the number of regulars to 82,000 by 2018.
Thousands of soldiers will learn today whether they have lost their jobs in the latest round of Army redundancies.
A fresh tranche of up to 5,300 Army personnel are to be handed redundancy notices as the Government tries to reduce the number of regulars to 82,000 by 2018.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the move was necessary to help balance the books but insisted operational capability would not be affected.
The Conservative MP and former Army Colonel Bob Stewart has told Daybreak of his concern over the latest round of cuts to the Army that will be announced this morning.
He said: "The Army is extremely small now...It really hurts me. You need an army to be used in an emergency."

The Government has a flawed plan for reforming the British Army. There is a huge effort going into sacking soldiers but nowhere near as much is being done to plug the gap by recruiting new reservists.
These redundancies represent not just broken promises but a failing strategy, and the level of voluntary applicants will be a signal of morale.
– Ministry of Defence spokeswoman
Tough decisions needed to be made to address the multibillion-pound deficit and bring the defence budget back into balance.
This unfortunately included making some redundancies across the armed forces. However we can be clear that these reductions will not affect our operational capability.
The end of combat operations in Afghanistan and the restructuring of our armed forces means they will be more reflective of the complex global situation and more adaptable to future challenges and threats.
The Army has been showing off its newest and most advanced vehicle - a remote-controlled armoured digger.
Each 'Terrier' costs six million pounds to build, and weighs as much as 15 transit vans.
The vehicles are driven by using a video game-style controller, which means soldiers can carry out a number of tasks a safe distance away.
Our Correspondent, Martin Dowse, has been to Bovington Camp in Dorset to see 'The Terrier' in action.
The interviewees are: Colonel Simon Hulme, Assistant Director, Military Engineering Capability; and David Bond from BAE Systems.
