Tips for snipers

1. Never put yourself in a position you cannot withdraw from
2. A cool head and a quiet response can often get you out of trouble, whilst a loud one can get you in deeper
3. Being concealed up a tree only works until you fire your first shot

Who gets the ASBO?

Many social observers seem to want us to embrace the 'cafe society laid back style' of our continental neighbours. I'm all for it.

Allan! Allan! Allan!

Most of my police-type mates (the `good guys` anyway) will enjoy this, as will the military-types and other eccentrics who drop by. Somehow it sums up what my take on life has been all about these past decades.....

"I'm sorry, what was the answer? I didn't quite understand your question........"

Speak softly and carry a big stick (and even if the stick isn't that big, wave it like it is)

I've been stewing a bit, since I heard of the instant withdrawal from service of our force of Harrier aircraft. I was equally miffed when I waved goodbye to the last two HMS Ark Royal's, the big one, pictured above (or maybe its HMS Eagle - yes we had more than one) as well as the `mini-me` version recently. I am currently reading a fascinating book about the last major Op by the last fast jet squadron to operate from the former Ark Royal. It is a tale from the last days of `Empire` and a fine testament to our Naval aviators. This review does a much better job than I could.

I guess we just don't do this stuff anymore.
