Call To Arms





It is sixty years this week since the Army and I parted company, which of us was the happier is an interesting question.

The recent reports to the effect that an EU Army is being proposed call to mind an old song, slightly amended so as not to give offence.

We are Claude Junckers Army,
No Euro use are we,
The only time you'll see us,
Is when we charge a fee.

But when a war is over,
We'll shout with all our might,
Per Ardua Ad Astra,
Up yours I'm alright.

So, by the Left..........

  3. Sounds formidable - a politically correct army with solar-powered tanks.
