Letter: The similarity between the NZ Army and this lot

23:00, Jan 29 2013

One could be forgiven for noticing the similarities between the New Zealand Army and their recent reckless live firing exercises in tinder-dry areas, and those of a certain Captain Mainwaring and his troupe of Home Guard volunteers that featured in the well- known TV comedy series, Dad's Army, set in World War II England. Certainly the circumstances of this ineptitude would have made a hilarious episode in that series, despite being alarming in today's real-life conditions.
