Ken,

The cost of the move (Project Hercules) was considerably south of £200M, a little adrift from your figure. Incidentally, Lyneham sits within the Defence College of Technical Training, which...

Foghorn,

I think Major General Tonje Skinnarland, a scopie, might disagree. The Norwegian public don't seem to have risen in revolt following her appointment either.

Soldiers, Sailors and ...?

So a lot of discussion ongoing about finding a collective noun to equate to soldiers and sailors. I agree that ‘officers, airmen and airwomen’ is somewhat clunky but what to use instead?
