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!

Who's top trumps to replace him? There's a corker in the wings, and his son is a great bloke too...

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!

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!

I would have liked Houghton in the seat, but that's just my opinion.
