    Mike,

    I have just reviewed all the BAB correspondence and must commend you on some very well researched, collated and presented evidence supporting our claim for AASM recognition. One hell of a good job and it’s no wonder defence is reviewing the situation. I grinned at the reference to drop bears and thought the comparisson of piquets with pick handles and loaded weapons with ROE was great. Although we have never met, I will remember never to piss you off. A top job Sir.

    Glen
