I respect the sentiment in the Chief of the General Staff General Sir Mark Carleton-Smith’s video message and I have great admiration for our armed forces.
However, I gotta be honest. I think it’s something to do with the delivery, but the hands on the hips, the intensity of the facial expression...sorry, but something suggests that behind the sincerity there lies a barely suppressed urge to giggle. Monty Python eat yer heart out.
I mean, using an image of Jeremy Corbyn for target practice? No laughing matter indeed…well, maybe just a little.
Montgomery went for hands in pocket or behind his back, the later matching the 'at ease pose' of his men.ReplyDelete
But I expect the modern Army has to be more 'inclusive'.
