Things I learnt yesterday..

1) I can’t really be trusted in Kew..there was a sale and I bought this

2) Lt General Sir Harry Burrard, was known as ‘Betty’ by his troops…

3) Whereas Major General Rowland Hill’s troops called him ‘Daddy’

4) I hate ironing and handwashing and am generally not fond of washing up

5) I’m still hugely interested in the Peninsula Wars and the stuff that lead up to Waterloo (although Capt Sir John Kincaid is still my favourite…)

6) “Egad, sir if I have killed today I mean to die like a gentleman” seems like a good way to go and face the enemy, whether that’s the French or depression…
