Dear all,

From all of us at DefenceReport – we wish you the best during the holiday season. Many pints, bottles of wine and whiskey will be drank but done so responsibly (which means we just don’t drive and not the amount of intake).

We will be back in 2018 with a lot of new reports, some changes to the website, and renewed vigor. If you are wondering why we have been a bit quiet – it is because Chris Murray, our admirable Assistant Editor, is undertaking his PhD at Kings College London and I, Stewart Webb, are under the weight of 4 book projects and other arduous tasks. And Timo is in Finland doing stuff.

Best wishes you to all.

From us at DefenceReport,

Stewart Webb
