or your parents are from another country,
their sense of patriotism is naturally going to lie
with that other country.
And there could be a tension between the fact
that you are ostensibly from one country,
but actually you may end up fighting for another.
So there was, certainly when I was young,
a suggestion when they realized
that I was interested in this kind of thing,
that I should perhaps go and join the Indian Air Force.
But as a British person,
having been brought up with British values,
and wanting to defend where I am and what I believe in,
it was more natural for me to join the RAF.
