    According to the Daily Telegraph, Phil the Greek has finally got around to describing his part in the battle of Cape Matapan in 1941. This was where Admiral Cunningham blew three Italian heavy cruisers out of the water in a short range night action. Prince Philip, then a midshipman, was in charge of the battleship Valiant's searchlights.

    Its only taken him about 70 years to do it - which is maybe taking modesty a bit far....
