If one wishes to command one of her Majesty's Regiments, then one needs to be able to handle media inquiries with a certain elan. I present the response of Lieutenant-Colonel James Cowan, commanding officer of the Black Watch, to comments by media panty-wringers fretting about the dangers they will face in the Sunni triangle:

"There's been much sensationalist talk about the threat we will face," he said. "Frankly, this regiment beat Napoleon, beat the Kaiser and beat Hitler. For the Jocks of the Black Watch this is just the latest chapter in our history and another job to be done."
