    Sir,
    I have the duty to inform you that your report, although well detailed, was submitted late - regulations state that actions undertaken in July should be reported within the same month; I can only assume that wounds received prevented this requirement being fulfilled.

    Sgt. Alibi will be awarded a small leaf thingy for being Mentioned in Dispatches - your award is withheld pending inquiry into the late report with explanation of wounds received.

    Golly. It looks like you’ve been working out, Chris. And a fetching grass kilt as well. Is it hot in here or is it just you?

    Sir, it is my pleasure to report to you the success of this combined services clandestine operation. As you know from the briefing, the target was a hostelry to the east of Embra. Its purpose was to disrupt, search and destroy the marauding haggi sequestered therein. In order not to foment rebellion, and better to blend in with the natives protecting the beasts, Sgt Alibi and myself donned appropriate disguises: he as a Turk and I as a South Seas Islander (please see supps. #1 and #2).

    Sir, whilst I was distracting the local peasants by displaying to them to them what lay under the grass skirt; the sergeant cornered one of the beasts and, with a ferocity that I have never seen displayed on the training grounds, skewered it with his dirk. Out spewed its innards – “Warm, reekin’, rich”, as Mr Burns (himself of Dumfries) has rightly asserted. Upon these, like a rabid dog, did the Sgt feast himself.

    Sir, At the point of exfiltration, A Lay-By, like a whirling dervish, did wield his sabre and did cut a bleeding swathe thro’ the mass of belligerents, allowing me to penetrate the cellar and secure a couple of firkins of the local tincture, uncouthly called Glenkinchie. Final exfiltration was assisted by the chaps of your own Tranent Sappers Divn.

    Sir, I hope that you and your men will enjoy your firkin of said Genkinchie, mine own are swinging from the firkin yardarms. Moreover, in recognition of his sabre-work, I hope you will consider the transfer of Sgt Aliby to the Tranent Heavy Horse Brigade, where I believe he will excel’

    Yr humble servant,

    Cmr Pl’sworth RN, inshore sqdrns.

    Sir,

    As a commander that has seen many navel actions, I do not wish to dwell upon injuries incurred in battle. But your inference, sir, is correct. The much regretted delay in my report was entirely due to a necessary visit to my ship's surgeon's mate, the surgeon himself being confined to the long boat on account of being bladdered by the Glenkinchie.

    Unfortunately in the action, a chance stroke of a skean dhu severed my gubernaculum and left my right testiculo floating in the bilges.

    It seems that nothing can be done and I will be called "One- (musket-) Ball Pluggy RN" and ridiculed around the fleet.

    I hope that you will feel this sufficiently explains the tardiness of my report, and that further admonishment is not required.

    Your servant,

    Cmdr Pl'wthy &c. &c.

    Which will be sometime in October after I get the new brakes on the Jeep. Plenty of time to plan out our clandestine activities without any snooping and prying from the pipe illuminati.

    Maj. -Gen.,

    in the light of the explanation are you recommendng the Commander for the award of a DFO (Distinguished Firkin Order) for the initial infiltration + the immediate award of a bar (as that's where the subsequent action occurred)?

    "Clandestine Activities" sounds great to me Russ, but it won't include the loss of body parts.

    Time for a little dessert; Rattray's 'Exotic Passion' in a Nomen Nescio no. 1155 S.
    One of three pipes dedicated to this nice-tasting, but persistent tobacco.
    To DW, it belongs to the "You're smoking that vile tobacco again" group.

    A great-looking pipe, that Holtorp.
    I have a Holtorp on the to-get list from my pipe restoring pipe friend.
    Thank you Dunstan. Its the first Holtorp I've bought and it smokes very nicely. Its non traditional shape made me push the "buy" button.
    I can easily understand you pushing that 'buy' button.
    It's some time ago since 'my' Holtorp made the to-buy list and I've clean forgotten what it looks like. Maybe I should go and buy it now.
