Does anyone else get a little bit of glee from the fact that the head of the British armed forces is Air Chief Marshal Jock Stirrup?

It gives me General Jack D. Ripper vibes. :-) It also has a 'porn name' ring to it...

Well, in the same way that Dubya is the head of the US armed services. Neither is generally referred to as such. In the us the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is referred to as the head of the armed services, Jock Stirrup is the Chief of the Defense Staff, which is basically the same role.
