Now that the British election is over, the UK Ministry of Defence is once again publishing its daily news roundup (suspended during the election by a law prohibiting government institutions from influencing the election with news/propaganda). I enjoyed this piece about a British soldier, LCpl. Wallace, and his security dog, named, of course, Grommit. It’s typical of the sense of humour that seems typical of the Brits. MP+
