[bar] IN 1952, Her Majesty's government announced the start of UK nuclear weapons testing; newspapers carried reports of atrocities carried out by British troops in Malaya; the armed forces were sent on a futile mission to suppress the uprising in Kenya.

In 2012, Her Majesty's government announced plans to press ahead with the Trident replacement programme; the conduct of British troops in Iraq remains to be fully investigated; the Armed Forces are still fighting a futile war in Afghanistan.

How many cheers does this deserve? Paul McGowan Earlsdon Avenue South, Coventry.
