If you were Prime Minister what’s the first thing you would do?
Oh, easy peasy. I’d create more medals to recognise the good work done by the army catering staff, in particular the Captain. After all, as Napoléon and my father said, an army marches on its stomach.
Are you a fan of the Royal Family – have you met any of them?
I can quite honestly say that I’ve waved at all of them! My father was quite the regular on the Royal party circuit and I’m proud to say I’ve honoured his memory admirably after inheriting his seat at the Royal table. Although I must admit I do sit much further away from her majesty than Daddy did. I’m yet to see if a post-Knighthood Prince Philip will actually wave back at me with more than one finger.
What’s your favourite kind of food/drink and/or restaurant?
Well after experiencing what catering can be like in the trenches, I’ve become accustomed to eating anything if I have to. So the basics: oysters, partridge, pheasant and champagne are enough for this little warrior.
What’s your favourite show and why?
I’m rather partial to The Antiques Roadshow. Well one has to be, I’ve caught Quinney on there twice having my silverware valued! Apparently it was just for insurance purposes; he’s ever so thoughtful.
What do you do in your spare time?
I’m afraid a Captain doesn’t get much spare time. But quite often, in-between polishing my medal and overseeing the stocktake of the army supplies, I can be found enjoying a sherry or two if not three.
