Yawn. Surely there are bigger fish to fry in the UK at the moment?

They got the ban lifted (which they knew about when they joined up), they had their pensions and medals back. What's next?!

It still applies in France, and means that any claim for asylum should have been made in the first safe country they arrived in.

Cutting 400 from the strength, closing Stonehouse and hijacking the bilateral relationship with USMC would be a start.

Nope.

The 'Boys' series of books has coped long enough not to be drawn into that type of weird social engineering. The women who flew and worked on Albert can be considered honorary 'boys'.
