LT XXXX - XXXXXXX is a fine example of a former Cavalry Officer, serving in a Yeomanry Company in a TA Infantry Battalion.
(i.e. a total cowboy) - no offence to the Cavalry by the way!
A Scottish friend of mine almost had,

This man is a credit to his nation placed on his CR,

Luckily it was intersepted and reworded prior to being sent.
