Communication under fire?
There have been some fascinating and moving TV programmes on recently to mark the commemoration of the start of the First World War 100 years ago. In some ways it seems like a bygone age where horsepower was still literally relied upon, a view helped of course by the black and white images jerkily making their way across our screens. Yet in other ways the problems faced by the troops and their Commanders don’t seem to have changed very much.
