Yes, the Generals as well. By jove you Generals we have no Field Marshal on here, when is Gen.Gordon going to get the Field Marshal's baton?

Is there a real Field Marshal in the British Army these days?

Australian Army highest rank is General, of which we have 1.

I am talking about real Field Marshals, who went through the officer ranks of the British Army, not the 'snobs.' i.e. Monty.

ANYWAY..Gentlemen (are there any women on here) From HM Colonies I propose that our General Gordon be promoted to Field Marshal with all the necessary benefits.

What say ye. I love you

Shelldrake,

God no, not Prince Edward for FM. H didn't finish his Royal Marine training did he, and as you say he is KG, GCVO. He also sports a Capt's uniform at the annual rememberance parade in Whitehall. Where's that from ?
