Quote of the week

The RAF was a comparatively tightly organised, high tech force, by and large with more modern equipment and operational command techniques than the Navy, and more so the Army. One consequence was that they were able to collate and distill information fast for their own purposes.

The upshot was that they had more up to date PR to hand on a regular basis.

Walt of the Walts

Flitting between OWOB and the Yard yesterday I could not help but notice that Broadway was brought to a standstill by a rare piece of theatre.  Inclusive as ever, I felt it was only right and propper to bring some of these stalwart chaps and chapesses to your attention.  The carefully chorographed posture of the front row had more than a hint of the "gang show" about it. Although amongst the captivated onlookers, I for one was expecting a Busby Berkley number at any moment. 

So have you spotted the Walt yet?  Well I had to wonder about the Snowdrop on the front row.  I rather think he he has dressed to impress, hoping for a cameo role?  For me the star of the show was the rather trim young lady in blue in the back row, a touch of the principal boy about her, but  a star with a leading role none the less. (  I must try and catch her in the club sometime)

How touching that this crew elected to have their house photograph taken in front of Scotland Yard, is it supposed to indicate some kind of affininy, or is it an attempt at irony?  I'm sure if they really wanted to be like the Met they would have a betting syndicate, perhaps they all went on for Lunch at the Cinnamon Club on the company amex?

Perhaps there is some reciprocity here and the staff from the Yard or Belgravia nick all line up to have their group photo outside 76 Rochester Row ?

So where do the Int Corps have their photo:  outside Group 4, Aegis or perhaps south of the river at the Cotton Centre?  I hope you are all ready for 26th July?  Its going to be quite a day.

Chin chin.

PS:  Not long before the nearest Int Corps Unit has a pretty WRAF OC  ;-)
