While Britain may not have enjoyed the meteoric progress under the present Queen that it did under Victoria, your sense of Philip seems to be awry. He was fiercely interested in science, technology,...

1) Crisis may be a bit strong, but they've struggled to fully man No.IX Squadron, I gather, and I also understand that there's a shortfall of pilots across the force. I don't know if that's down...
