    At last. It's been ages since we have had a Gunner as CDS*!! :D

    Edit: I was thinking Alanbrooke, but I suppose that doesn't really count!
  2. Who's top trumps to replace him? There's a corker in the wings, and his son is a great bloke too...
  3. Described recently in the press by most Officers as a "Soldier Soldier" can't be worse that Jock the Strap the Quietest yes man in NATO!
  4. happy days and a definate soldier!!!
  5. Jolly good news. Why wait until the Autumn?

    The only fly in the ointment may be if the general forgets that:

    soldiers are more important than peerages!
  6. Yeah - wonderful - great - my gusset is sopping - whatever. You really think CDS can do anything but rearrange the deckchairs ???

  7. I would have liked Houghton in the seat, but that's just my opinion.
  8. I second that Houghton would have been my choice but I aint incharge unfortunatly
