Not the most direct route from Bristol to Bradford. But worth the visit. Chatham House rules applied, so I am limited as to what can be said. Suffice to say that I gave a lecture to 160+ Majors on the Command and Staff College Course.

My slot, I am told, is one of the most difficult to fill. It requires the lecturer to give a candid appraisal of the military performance in Iraq and Afghanistan, with no holds barred mostly to soldiers who saw active service in both theatres. Described as a "target round", my talk was very well received. So much so, I have been asked to come back for the next three courses.

Chuffed is a word I think is appropriate in this case. I'll get back to work later today.
