It was great to see Prince Edward again, bemedalled and bejeweled, attending the St Paul's service for Iraq on Friday last. Having 'dropped out' of his Commando training course at CTC Lympstone, he appears to have collected a whole load of gongs; presents from Mummy or front-line service to Queen and Country? Am I correct in assuming that all Officers of the Wessex Yeomanry have such gorgeous uniforms? Or has Edward blown the whole TA training budget in decking himself out in such bird-of-paradise finery? As a Falklands Veteran, with two CTG318 Commendations, I was apoplectic with hypertension to see him strutting the stage amongst so many remarkable, brave, loyal members of our armed forces. No doubt, he'll now have accelerated promotion, from Royal Honorary Colonel to goodness knows what!
