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.
Army regiments across the meridian region will feel the effects of the defence cuts announcement
The region's army personnel are bracing themselves for further cuts.
The Defence Secretary Philip Hammond will reveal later where the axe is to fall in the latest round of military cutbacks.
It's though about a fifth will lose their jobs by 2020 while dozens of units will be scrapped or merged.
More than four hundred Gurkha soldiers, many of whom are based in Kent, lost their jobs in a previous round of defence cuts.
Britain also lost its flagship aircraft carrier, the Portsmouth based HMS Ark Royal.
Defence Secretary Philip Hammond has confirmed that army numbers will be cut by 20,000 over the next few years.
Mr Hammond confirmed that some historic Army units would be scrapped and others merged in the coming years as it scaled back its regular strength from 102,000 to 82,000.
He said the changes would mean an increased reliance on private military contractors and on part-time reservists as a result of plans set out in the Government's Strategic Defence and Security Review.
In future, the reserves would take on some tasks currently carried out by regular troops.
Mr Hammond also indicated that when it came to deciding which units were to be axed, the Army would take account of demographic changes.
He said: "While we are determined to maintain an effective regimental system, it must be based on the realities of today, and the primacy of capability."

More than 150 paratroopers from the UK and US have parachuted together onto Salisbury plain. Soldiers from the 4th Battalion the Parachute Regiment joined forces with members of the US Army based in North Carolina.
They jumped in each others equipment from a Hercules C130 aircraft. The opportunity to parachute in another nation’s parachute equipment allows the soldier to wear that country’s coveted wings.
A World War Two pipe mine found close to the Isle of Wight's main gas pipe has been safely detonated. The device was one of two discovered at BAE Systems' Cowes site, which was part of RAF Somerton during the war. More ground work is needed before the second mine is removed.
The study explores how those in the Forces think they are seen by people in Britain, their experiences of wearing uniform in public, and what problems they experience as a result of their service.
The study also reveals how they see their career prospects once they leave the Forces.
