I suppose you'll be retiring to your Chateau behind the lines leaving us poor devils still stuck in the trenches!

The château is full - he can have some curtains for his dug-out instead.

I'll tell you one thing: one is a long time as a Lieutenant General, especially if the new-look forum arbitrarily knocks hundreds and hundreds off the total posts with a wave of the wand.

So, time for a lucky flutter as well???!!! But now begins the long climb to the next step up the ladder... Enjoy doing it and keep those amusing if not-counted Skindles posts coming as well.

In peacetime, you would not.

 

Either a servant, or an orderly.

 

You will have to pay him the set rate [on top of his soldier's pay], and provide him with "plen cluths" for when you are in mufti and he accompanies you. He must also serve in the Mess for formal occasions as required. And, note, he is to be, and remain, a trained soldier, and to volunteer for the post.

 

Well treated, he will serve you loyally. Ill-treated, and he will spit  [or worse] in your soup..

The allocation of ranks depending on the number of posts is amusing and does no  harm, but, I feel bound to ask, has it got to do with the Great War.

Informs the novice of the army hierarchy perhaps.

it cannot, can it?

 

The newcomer only sees stasis, surely?

 

And the early progression through a few junior ranks tells only a short story.

 

The novice has to be very observant to see much happening above field rank.
