Thanks to The Regimental Rogue for this most timely post.

Good, reasoned and responsible defence policies (the “economical preparation”) save both money and lives. We had only weak, parsimonious policies in 1914 and in 1939, we either relied on others, as we do now, or thought that we just couldn’t afford to be prepared. The cost is still visible …

… how much were their lives worth? How many might have lived, or, at least, not have been blown to pieces, if there had been just a little more preparation in 1910 and 1935?

Maybe we should ask these guys what they think …
