Thanks! Had been discussing the UK Defence Secretary's cringeworthy speech earlier when I came across this photo. Seemed appropriate.

@fitheach Up there with the year 2000 Ig Nobel Peace Prize to the Royal Navy for shouting "Bang!" instead of using cannon shells. Also, the British Army in 2005, apparently. :-)

In turn that reminds me of the excellent Star Trek TOS episode: A Taste of Armageddon
