    "Cuts to the armed forces are threatening to undermine the pageantry and pomp of Britain's biggest ceremonial events, one of the Army's most senior officers has warned.

    So its becoming increasingly clear that to be a DT correspondent, one must read Focus, Soldier and the odd press release, turn the words out of all meaning into a new non story and then retire for a glass of wine and to complete expenses?
