Mr. Double-Barralled one of my favourite recruitment consultants very kindly offered to take me to dinner last night. We had a fabulous Italian meal at a place right next door to Chelsea Barracks. Our waitor Tito (identifiable by his name badge) was questioned about his heritage by Mr. D-B and from there flowed a whole discussion on the Bosnian conflict, the history of Yugoslavia, the division of land, politics, and various different cultural aspects. Absolutely fascinating stuff. We were there until they shut the lights off just discussing the impact of the war. Yet again I realised how much life in the military teaches the recruits and consequently their perspectives are often far wider than Joe Public.
