Thank you for your correction of the spelling, I was not quite sure of the spelling myself. Please feel free to correct my spelling and/or
grammar at anytime. I will take no umbrage, I am much to old for that.
Deployment: When you are talking about deployment of an entire division, the time-lag is usually shorter due to the fact that a division is so
designed to be "self-sustaining", by virtue of deploying along with all of its supporting units.
The cost (day-to-day costs) of maintaining such an undertaking is extremely high. I would venture to place a time schedule of 14 to 21 days. This
of course is my best-estiment, based on my nearly 7 years in military service.
We are grateful for the support and real military assistance given by the U.K. and its Armed Forces, especilally the RAF. Let us pray that war
does NOT come, but if it does let it be focused, concise and conclusive.
