It’s not unusual to like military history…

… as Sir Tom Jones reveals in ShortList magazine. Aside from admitting to once buying a Nazi sword in Germany, ‘It was this massive bloody great blade with a swastika imprinted on it. My mum went stark raving bonkers at me’,

Tom also tells readers about his enthusiasm for the 1759 Battle of the Plains of Abraham:

‘We’ve had some great scraps with the French over the years. This time [James] Wolfe won, but he was still shot dead, I believe.’

Indeed he was, Sir Tom, indeed he was.
