    My father served with the R.A.S.C. ( Logistics ) in Italy during W.W. II. Amongst the jobs to be done was an inventory of all the stored equipment, it was reckoned that no one ever looked at these, so much so that my father signed them “The Duke Of Edinburgh ” ( colleague signed Oor Willie ) and was never reprimanded. The British Army were not interested in D.O.E. What chance does Prince Edward have ?
