While you're on Sheldrake, old chap.

I was wondering whether you'd be using your IT skills to publish that picture of Gordon I sent you.

That would put the cat amongst the pigeons, eh ? Very Happy

As my promotion to Let Gen is imminent, I shall be unable to make any more Posts until I am properly dressed. Therefore, my next Post will be after I have received my Let Gen accoutrements and relevant insignia from Ebay. Thanking you in advance for your patience and understanding. Cool

Congratulations on your impending promotion and your prudence

However there are a number of pitfalls

You are clearly thinking of the additional military dress accoutrements but your many friends on this site will be expecting more than a round of drinks in the Senior Officers Mess

Sadly from your point of view promotion to Lieutenant General no longer means an automatic knight hood and a recent defence economy has removed the house staff from senior officers residence, you will have to cut your own grass on that imposing lawn

Finally one for our Administrators, the correct British abbreviation for Lieutenant General is Lt Gen, I am sure our distinguished General Staff are not for hire

JPW, thank you for your concern but it is really rather unnecessary, Old Boy.


As this is a BFG/BAOR Website, and I had the foresight to retain a large quantity of Deutschmarks when I left Germany, I have put DM 200 behind the Bar in the Senior Officers Mess. I have instructed the Barman to use the conversion rate of DM 20 to the Pound Sterling, this will accommodate every ones memory!!

I had the great good fortune to be honoured by HM The Queen queen in the recent New Years Honours List with a 'K' for services above and beyond the Call of Duty to the Barnes Wallis Royal Artillery Memorial Society.


When I was promoted to Maj Gen, the Memsahib, anticipating our elevation to Let Gen and subsequent allocation of an Official Duty Residence, purchased a flock of Sheep.
