".... is a splendid type and a good (rugby) player... but... virtually bone from the neck up, and needs things explained in words of one letter."

Guess who. But how many people do you know whose CR could well contain this remark have risen to Field Marshall rank?


How about,
This mans ancesters slipped into the gene pool while the life guard was not looking?
Or. This man has two brains, but it seems one has gone off to look for the other.
Or. This man has a driving licence.
"Sets a low standard and fails to achieve it."
"Looks good in coveralls"
"Looks good in the field,but so do turnips. :roll: :roll: :roll:
"This man would be out of his depth in a car-park puddle"

"Works well when cornered like a rat in a trap"

"His section follows him, but purely out of curiosity"

"Tries hard - fails miserably"

'I would not breed from this Officer.'

'He has a dug a hole for himself, reached the bottom and continues to dig!'

'This man has deprived a village somewhere of its idiot.'

The entire narrative written about a friend of mine by his 1st RO -
'This man is fat and wears glasses.'

And one of mine -
'He does not suffer fools, irrespective of rank. This tends to polarise some Officers' view of him.'
# His men would follow him anywhere, but only out of curiosity.

# This Officer is really not so much of a has-been, but more of a definitely won't-be.

# When she opens her mouth, it seems that this is only to change whichever foot was previously in there.

# He has carried out each and every one of his duties to his entire satisfaction.

# Technically sound, but socially impossible.

# This Officer reminds me very much of a gyroscope - always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere.

# This young lady has delusions of adequacy.

# When he joined my ship, this Officer was something of a granny; since then he has aged considerably.

# This Medical Officer has used my ship to carry his genitals from port to port, and my officers to carry him from bar to bar.

# Since my last report he has reached rock bottom, and has started to dig.

# She sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.

# He has the wisdom of youth, and the energy of old age.

# This Officer should go far - and the sooner he starts, the better.

# In my opinion this pilot should not be authorized to fly below 250 feet.

# The only ship I would recommend this man for is citizenship.

# Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap

# Only occasionally wets himself under pressure
He is a highly intelligent Officer.
