Allegedly of a Cav officer: "I would not breed from this officer".
Allegedly of a Gunner officer whose sister was a rather well-known model: "It is a shame he is not as attractive as his sister".
In both cases I feel the comments say more of the writer than the person being written upon. And finally, my favourite..... written of a friend who was a good egg and very experienced operational type.... the SRO's comment was simply "promote this man now". He was.

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.
