Felt a bit sorry for Sir Mark, his last review hurrah - standing on a P2000 watching a RIB wizz by.
Sic transit gloria navis
Looking at the braid, why are the dangly bits with tassles not worn in the same way?
I did try google but...
I don't feel sorry for him.
Singularly the most uninspiring man to ever have reached the top of the Service. Devoid of chrisma, insight and original thought.

An anagram of Admiral Stanhope is Handrail Tempos. You can easily make the word 'Llama' out of Admiral Zambellas but I am not sure this is significant. Llamas tend not to go to sea.

Can't they pay the difference if they want a macaw? Out of their shoe buckle allowance or somesuch?
Just put in a non patt demand or GPC it, I'm sure 1sl would be high enough top cover.
