Foreign Studes

I know that HMG has long been impecunious, and that foreign students have enjoyed the benefits for some time of the College of Knowledge, RMAS, and the sailor school. But today's Times mentions 2 PLA (as in China) recent IOT graduates. Shouldn't be surprised after this week's epic grovelling.

thoughts?

I did a course in 2001 with 2 PLA students on at shrivenham - not new, not exciting and frankly unless Cranwell has changed a lot, not likely to tell them or teach them anything they don't already know.

But a great way to introduce paralysis and indecision into the PLA..... genius.

Long, long history. First Chinese attendees to ETPS was in the 40s I believe. Wing Hi and Wing Lo I think they were called.

And there were numbers operating from what became known as the "Chinese airfields" - Lin Ton and Lee Ming.
