Newsletter – 5 December 2019
December 5, 2019 Newsletter
Having spent the last few days talking to fascinating people at the International Security Expo in London, we’ve been mercifully spared the endless election coverage. For those of you still on the fence about who to give your vote to, this article on where each party stands on the issue of defence might be useful.
Elsewhere, there is good news for 27 military colleagues who have been named in the latest Operational Honours and Awards list. The list recognises the bravery, commitment and commendable service of service personnel within the military and is something we can all be proud of.
And finally, police in Gibraltar have increased their efforts to find the body of Naval Rating Simon Parkes, who went missing in 1986. A tragic tale, but it is reassuring to know that the police have not given up and we may one day see justice done and his body returned to his parents for a proper burial. It goes without saying that if any of our readers have any information, please do get in touch with the police.

Joke: The Hairdryer
A distinguished young woman on a flight from Switzerland asked the Priest beside her, "Father, may I ask a favor?" "Of course. What may I do for you?"
"Well, I bought an expensive woman's electronic hair dryer for my mother's birthday. The dryer is unopened and well over the Customs limits; and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through Customs for me? Under your robes perhaps?"
"I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you: I will not lie."
"With your honest face, Father, no one will question you."
When they reached the Customs area, she let the priest go ahead of her.
The official asked: "Father, do you have anything to declare?"
"From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare."
The official thought this answer strange, so asked, "And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?"
"I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused."
Roaring with laughter, the official said, "Go ahead, Father."
