The RAF high ups wouldn’t allow it. I well remember “yes, prime minister” when it was sugg stead moving the army barracks up north to unemployment blackspots to create jobs. “The generals would never allow it. It’s too far from Harrods”

Yeah, well, now the Army's in the late RAF Leuchars, right? Just remember who does the fighting and who does the talking these days. Senior officers wanting a K and a big pension know which side their bread is buttered.
