Tony Radakin And Ben Wallace In Russia

The Times today has published a picture with this caption.

Ben Wallace, the defence secretary, his counterpart, Sergei Shoigu, Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, chief of the defence staff, and Valery Gerasimov, chief of general staff

Ever since, Tony Radakin was made Chief of the Defence Staff, I’ve been curious about his name.

So tonight, I typed “radakin surname” into Google and got this answer.

Radakin (Russian: Радакин) is carried by more people in Russia than any other country or territory. It can also be rendered as a variant

Interesting! But surely, something that will enable the three military men and the former Scots guardsman to get on a bit better!
