A partial explanation for the light blogging. The Defence Debate over in Jersey. From the left, General Sir John Wilsey, President of the Royal British Legion – Jersey Overseas Branch, Air Marshal Philip Sturley, President of The Royal Air Forces Association, Peter Troy, chairman, yours truly, and Canon Dr Peter Williams, Vicar of Gouray.
Interestingly, I met an Army Captain today, who had been at the debate - where I had expressed serious doubts about the campaign in Afghanistan. He had been in theatre and told me that those doubts were very much shared by the soldiers in the field.
More when I get back home tomorrow.
