Many years ago in the times that our fine nation was in charge of one third of the world by means of ther British Empire there was no pretence as to why we had an Army, a Navy or even for a short time an Air force. The whole 'shooting match' (and it was) was by the Ministry of War, known as the War Office.

There was no Ministry of Defence (MOD) because we knew in those days that the best form of Defence was to Attack.
