Oops … where were we … oh, yes. To not digress: some years ago there was a strip in a newspaper somewhere that challenged readers to ‘spot the clue’. In one of them a bearded army officer gives the detective guy (hero! Yay!) a slip of paper with a vital misdirection written thereon.
Clever detective fellow isn’t taken in and ends up nabbing the bugger, so it was win-win for him. So?

So at yesterday’s delightful(?) circus the noble Prince Harry of England wore the ‘full frock-coat uniform of The Blues and Royals‘. I recall the Bs and Rs as being British Army … but do not recall the anti-fuzzface rules being rescinded. A bit of a puzzler, unless the UK army
needs wants its Moslems to comply with Allah (first) and a chosen UK military career (second); and graciously permitted His Royal Nibs to retain the Royal ‘Skers.
(But despite being a declared atheist I still had to attend compulsory divine services …)
