The Exemplary Officer

‘HAVING perfected the art of urban camouflage – chinos, baseball cap, spliff, bout of mindless violence – Prince Harry has moved swiftly onto Module 2 of his Army training.

Pass the Duchess on the left hand side

As the Mail writes, the young Prince is taking a course at Sandhurst, the Royal Military College in Surrey, entitled ‘The Exemplary Officer’.

The paper tells readers that the course covers “everything from which cutlery to use at the dinner table to how to give the loyal toast”, vital weapons in any officer’s kit bag.

Mail readers will need no reminding of the correct way to behave at the table, but just in case some wily asylum seeker is looking in, the paper reminds them that one of the worst faux pas is to pass the port incorrectly.

The method it not to smash the bottle into the head of the person to your right, nor is it to take a swig and wipe the top clean with your thong before vomiting into the gutter, but to pass the decanter to the left.

It’s all quite simple, and Harry will not go too far wrong if he employs the simple and refined cannabis etiquette.

“Don’t Bogart the port,” as they now say in the better billets…’
