"The Intelligence officer - or non-commissioned officer - with his enquiring mind, his refusal to accept everything at face value, and with his interest in what has happened limited to the help it will be in in estimating what is going to happen, is "different", and therefore still, to a certain extent, suspect."

It is often stated that the Union Flag should only be described as the Union Jack when flown in the bows of a warship, but this is a relatively recent idea. From early in its life the Admiralty itself frequently referred to the flag as the Union Jack, whatever its use, and in 1902 an Admiralty Circular announced that Their Lordships had decided that either name could be used officially. Such use was given Parliamentary approval in 1908 when it was stated that "the Union Jack should be regarded as the National flag".

[QUOTE=Krazy_Ivan;4276300]We used to walk from Whitehaven to St Bees & then back home again just in time for lunch, no wonder my knees are fucked at the grand old age of 35.
Some serious hills on that route, particularly on the way back! I remember always having sand in my toes going back home and it chaffed like fuck!The memories of a man in his old age, are the deeds of a man in his prime.
