Inevitable demise

THE DEMISE OF the last flying Avro Vulcan B.2 bomber was a sad but inevitable event — if not now, then certainly in ten or 12 years time. Having been ‘a total aviation person’, man and boy, for 30 years, I understand well the emotion and reaction of your correspondents.

However, let us pause for a moment and consider the state of the RAF today. Its master is Her Majesty’s Government (of whatever persuasion) and that master is elected by you, the electorate. Rightly or wrongly, the government has entered a period of contraction in defence capability, in which the

Born 1901, died 1953, and after several abortive, short-lived attempts—some of which, it should be said, were fairly ill conceived— Indian is now set to rejoin the living with entirely new motorcycles designed from the ground up as their own thing. Not clones. Not crazy mashups. No, sir: the real deal.

And, yes, you read that right. Motorcycles, plural. While many of us assumed Indian would be Midwestern conservative and bring

Indian OCEAN



Like its big sister Manhattan, the brand-new St Regis Mauritius is one classy lady. Thankfully, pretensions are few (no one bats an eyelid at our seen-better-days flip-flops) and its locations, on a 900m stretch on the south of the island, adds a breezy vibe to its refinement. All of the 172 rooms have the requisite view (sparkling Indian Ocean), best enjoyed with a signature La Belle Creole Mary cocktail. Most of the action takes place around
