The Army versus Navy Match is the annual rugby union match played between the senior XV teams of the Royal Navy and British Army.
It marks the culmination of the annual Inter-Services Competition as no-one ever goes to the matches against the Royal Air Force!
This year its going to be held on May the 9th. Looks like it will be another sell out .....
Dr Jim has published a new piece in the Journal of Military Operations around C2. Some lovely tart comments in there such as

Today's Daily Telegraph reports that the Ministry of Defence has been "forced" to accept a four day visit of military experts from Moscow under a "European arms control treaty".
The newspaper says that Russian military experts have arrived at RAF Lossiemouth to attend Exercise Joint Warrior. The MoD said that the Russian team will be accompanied at all times and will not be given access to sensitive information.
As many here will know, these "European" arms control treaties are nothing to do with the EU, and the USA are signatories.
