    I met Beattie over last summer. He astonished me by being behind the mission, beleving in it and in progress - and yet he was plainly no naif, he was totally clear-sighted. He struck me as being one of that breed who would, 100 years ago, have made highly effective political officers on the Northwest Frontier.

    If he comes out of this tour in one piece - and let us hope he does - the Army should pay him double what he is getting now to lecture officers on how to motivate themselves and their troops for this war.

    He's an impressive man.
  2. What a man. When I was reading that I could feel my eyes prickling. Good luck to him, and his fellow rangers.
  3. He was a bit of a **** during the build up when he was our training major.
  4. He wasn't that much better during H4!
  5. I can't help but think he is ****ing tempting fate with this type of rhetoric
  6. One of his brothers thinks the same!
