Another Veterans Minister deserts the sinking ship

In all the years we managed without a Veterans Minister we have had dozens.
Now our latest attribution has thrown in the towel.


The grass is greener ?

Plymouth Moor View MP Johnny Mercer has landed a second job at a 'cyber security' firm earning £85,000 a year.

The ex-soldier has secured the role of 'non-executive director' for military veterans support company Crucial Academy Ltd

The one shining light in a dismal crowd of useless former Veterans Ministers -Captain Johnny Mercer- (Royal Artillery 29th Commando Regiment ) has thrown in the towel.
As a BrownJob he was ever at a disadvantage in the eyes of the Senior Service but he was one of the best. Another BrownJob has relieved him. Let's see what we make of him and his sinecure.
Wikipedia isn't always right, it's called 29 Commando, not the 29th...just saying ;)

The new guy is Leo Docherty, ex-Scots Guards.

148 ( Meiktila ) Battery

148 (Meiktila) Commando Forward Observation Battery Royal Artillery is a Commando-trained unit of specialist Naval Gunfire Forward Observers. Although part of 29th Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, it conducts many operations separately from the rest of the regiment. Royal Artillery batteries are usually named after one of their battle honours; the Battle of Meiktila occurred in Burma in February/March 1945, with 148 Battery firing its 25-pounder guns in support of 255th Armoured Brigade.

Your nit-picking trying to be clever arrant pedantry has got the better of you, It all depends on ones age and seniority.
