SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: SAS hero launches full frontal assault on the Army's diversity drive

Jones is a uniformed senior civil servant doing and saying whatever is required, regardless of his professional responsibilities and the demands of moral courage. No doubt he spends much of his working day tirelessly planning our next fiasco and wondering why his subordinates are so cynical.
He's got a shit wiki page for a Lt Gen, doesn't seem to have accomplished a great deal in thirty odd years.

Bad manners are the least of a trans problems when the people they're facing view them as the work of Beelzebub and would delight in chopping their head off.
A point that was totally lost on a lot of Dfid types in the PRT at LKG, while they were totally anti our imperial past, they could not see that their progressive views were nothing but cultural imperialism and doing more damage than good.

I hadn't considered it like that before but you highlight another breathtaking arrogance of the enlightened ones.

More than one or two seemed to think that western style female equality should be, if not our number one, at least our number two priority.

Perhaps. But there's too often a sense on here that those at the top are both incompetent and just on the take. Not all of them are bad by any means.

Which doesn't mean that some of them shouldn't be criticised or ridiculed.
I don't think any of our VSO are bad or incompetent, but they have devised or inherited a toxic system, that does not work for anyone.

Some certainly are, any black, Muslim, female, disabled photo ops and they will fight to get in the frame, things like actually improving the army and its, meh.

There’s a gap in his Wiki page between his time as a junior officer and reappearing in the Sappers as a CO. It’s not that he wasn’t accomplishing a great deal in the time. A clue; he wasn’t serving with his Corps and the Regiment he was serving with doesn’t tend to publish much.

The Wavell Room did an interview with him about a year ago, and the page for the podcast/sound file & transcript provides (or did when I last looked) a bio which outlines his career in the 'missing years' quite well...

Coming to the discussion late but in regards to a “Sikh Regt” how about taking a page from the Frogs ?

So from what I read

1 RT = all the N African Infantry(Native) Colonial Regts
1 RS (Spahis)= all the N African (Native) Cavalry Colonial Regts
1 RChA = all the French Colonial Cavalry Regts

IIRC one of their Marine Inf Regts represents all the Senegalese Regts
And the Commando School carried the colors of the Zouave Regts

Maybe a nice generic “1st Bn, The Prince of Wales’s Regt” ?
