Gen Cowan's Edict - A Reply

A tad like the conference he attended where they served sarnies and he quite happily ate them.

Apparently there were quite a few sniggers.

I seem to recall one of the principles of leadership was consistency. His subordinates won't now know what they can and can't do. Keep them on their toes though, guessing what is and isn't acceptable, unless some things are good for the goose, but not for the gander.

Flashman was a bit of a boots and spurs chap, never seemed to mind who was wearing them so long as, at least, one was!

We need more Flashmans in the New Modern Army (NMA, in case you need to fit it on to Powerpoint).
 
I think I read somewhere that Wellington, on returning home, would pleasure his wife without taking his boots off, so there's a nice precedent to be included in orders to officers on how to behave. Before telling them they must sit in between two total military bores next time they visit the mess.
I think that was Marlborough, and it was apparrantly his wife who told the story.
A bit late however.
