Bird & Fortune – Admiral Sir George Parr

Useful background for Harrier jet pilot Royal Navy Lieutenant Commander Chris Ward who asked Cameron: “I am a Harrier pilot and I have flown 140 odd missions in Afghanistan and I am now potentially facing unemployment. How am I supposed to feel about that, please, sir?”

“(The harrier) A very good piece of kit, provided you don’t use it against a country that has its own airforce”.

“So it’s ideal against the taliban”.
