Kate,

I think you mean lager! I despair sometimes...

You Black Rats can only write in yellow crayon...

Quite a stout chap Chelmsford though he did have some alements such as never getting a round in for his men thus leading to the ammunition debacle.

Communications were vital to him on campaign and after he'd drawn up a draught message he would use a Porter to deliver it.
Some say he lost his bottle and that he ended up carrying the can for his mistakes.
Personally I don't think he lagered his camp due to a harrowing childhood  caused by being raised by evil Foster parents.

As for yellow crayons JY, when you are the elite of the elite , its all you need.
(At least, unlike the TSG, we can spell it.)
Very Happy

Hi Kate
I have to differ on Chelmsfords parsimony, he is on record of 'sharing a bottle', I will leave you to find out with whom. Very Happy Very Happy agree

Cheers
