    Interestingly and baring this conversation in mind, I noted that when The Late Queen’s coffin was flown in to Northolt the other evening, the RAF were there to do the honours and two of the female RAF Officers in the Reception Party were wearing skirts and were carrying swords. Perhaps, the RAF have their way of doing things too?
    The RAF company of about 200 that greeted Her Majesty on the runway at Northolt had impeccable, absolutely perfect drill. You would expect them to be good but as far as I could see, they were flawless.
    Those ancient U Nialls from Donegal were a randy bunch.
