  2. Brown is the new Green sweetie. The Army should be two things - Classy and Fabulous; and I'm glad that the Army is taking fashion seriously. It still has an issue with the need to promote Ambi-Turners on drill though.

  4. The foxhounds that came into Herrick last year are already that colour. I can't really see that much difference. It's more like a darker desert buff tone, not really brown. Unless the image from the Guardian doesn't do it justice.
