Yes, definitely a walt, no naval connections there.

Let us not forget that Winston Churchill after his little debacle in the Dardenells put on uniform and commanded a battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers on the Western Front in 1916.

And from your earlier, the Ted Heath (spit) wiki entry is wrong to say he commanded 2nd Battalion, it was 2nd Regiment. 2nd Bn defunct after WW1.For Flag & Empire !

Anyway... back to the NAFFI. He can't be a walt for wearing a RYS uniform can he? Incidentally, First Sea Lord grants no uniform bar that of offical Court Dress or Ministerial Dress (which since circa 1920s has ceased to be). DOuble win to me and a flash of what's not under ma' kilt.It was good while it lasted.

Given his extreme pacifism which I would have thought been borne of horrors of war Neville Chamberlain served in neither the South African Wars nor World War I.It was good while it lasted.
