Messenger or Deverell as his relief?!
Yep, they'll be jockeying for position.

Both of them are excellent chaps and have worked with them in the joint environment. But my sense is that Gen Deverell wouldn't want to be CDS because of domestic circumstances. Gordon Messenger is a thoroughly decent and hugely experienced chap who can drink for NATO and would be an excellent choice; the sS chiefs are all relatively new and Carter is regarded as a bit of a loose cannon.
