Ah, so it's back to 2-star (same as when the job was 5th Sea Lord), which is a relief in terms of FAA influence at the top table which is sorely needed.

Head of Fighting Arm? Sorry Hadn't realised he was to be Armed to Fighting Head--Sorry Head of Fighting Arm. So long as there's someone filling this vital role -We can sleep easily in our hammocks.

Sir Walter of Norman, I know it's been many a moon since you jacked in as a Jack, but hammocks, like the Navy of your ancient day, have gone the way of the dodo and your grandsons career.

So, once again Norman fails to add anything intelligible despite inundating the forum with his posts, thus promoting the consignment of another promising CA thread to the Gash Barge. I'm still waiting for him to answer the questions he's been asked, i.e. (1) What useful contribution did he ever make to the Armed Forces compared with the high achievers he resents so much and (2) Who does he think should become Head of the FAA? Even Norman should be able to scrape together enough brain cells to answer such simple questions in a straightforward manner but I wouldn't put any money on it.

By the way, we are all taxpayers so what makes him so special in this respect?

(Shhhh! Norman could be the most irritating wah-merchant on earth but I suspect he is really some long-retired Admiral or passed-over Lt Cdr who's gone ga-ga and doesn't know anyone sane enough to tell him. So much for Care in the Community!)

Sir Walter of Norman had a very tough billet during his short and less than stellar career in the Navy.

His key task was lounging over the rail on the arse end to decoy the shitehawks on their bombing runs. After suffering PTSD from the constant attacks, Norman transferred to the RNZN as Kiwis can't fly.
