Harding Wrong (Again) - shock

Not sure why you all believe Mr Harding as usual his work is flawed (not least the figure 32,000 which is neither the 2015 position nor the 2020 one). Liability for recall for the Regular Reserve of...

Spot on Foldingwings

The RN planners sold their souls for 2 carriers in SDR and stuck to their guns thereafter. Ironic that the main protagonist was Admiral West!

My engineers let me wind the clock up! I reckoned it was delicate and technical equipment so they must have held me in very high regard. The nose gunner was only allowed to repack and instal the...

Old Duffer

Sadly Old Duffer the clue is in the title: Civil Component. RAF(CC) are civil servants and thus not eligible for the gong. I didn't think VR(T) officers were either but I could be wrong.

When I was involved with this programme in 2004 the book price was 3.9Bn but the MOD had a line entry which totalled only 3.6Bn. Over 6Bn is cost over-run gone mad!

I heard Liam Fox say he wasn't responsible for regional policy and any basing decisions would be founded in hard-headed logic (aka finance). Sub-text was that if for example closing Lossie made a...

I used to lecture on CESR at IOT. My basic line was 'This is a load of bolleaux, if you need to be told how to behave - you're in the wrong place'!
