  1. It’s great to see you back Tony. 25 per cent more Gurkhas for the British army is welcome news. I wonder how far this increase will go to offset the Gurkhas who were laid-off over the years? Interesting to read too that Michael Fallon, despite Brexit, is in Brussels attempting to block the formation of a European army, as it undermines NATO. It’s a good idea, but one wonders how long it will be before a European army is formed. I fear this will only stall Franco-German plans to create an army in the future. Great post mate.
