Soundbites do not change the fact that the British Army is in need of great care, especially in the tank department. Former Army officer Patrick Benham-Crosswell’s article on this matter is my pick of the week.

Responding to the Defence Secretary’s comment that we need an army ‘fit for tomorrow’s battles, not fighting yesterday’s’, Patrick noted that this platitude ignored the issue of fighting today’s battles. He added that ‘the Army is [currently] a conceptual mess. With just three regular tank regiments and five armoured infantry battalions, it is hardly a significant player in high-intensity wars.’

For a sobering reminder that rhetoric does little to remedy our troubles, I recommend you read Patrick’s piece here.

Margaret has a dual choice outside the top ten: Ollie Wright’s tribute to the men of the RAF on Battle of Britain day, 80 years after the event, and Henry Getley’s ‘Remember Arnhem’ on the 76th anniversary of the start of Operation Market Garden. Both highlighted inspiring courage and fortitude, and at the same time they were a dispiriting reminder of how greatly our society has changed since those days when Britain united against tyranny.
