The 'Barmy One'.
Johnathan Bailey, K.C.V.O. Lord Bishop of Derby, gave me, I suspect, the title 'The Barmy One'. The current Clerk of The Closet (Salary £7 per annum) Christopher Hill, Lord Bishop of Guilford, may be a little kinder, and refer to me as the 'balmy' one, instead. A slight difference in spelling! My dear late cousin Charles, Earl of Southesk (Senior K.C.V.O.) would have reprimanded the noble Lord Bishop of Derby, for his uncharitable impertinence!...But all is forgiven. I have a reputation to maintain, as one of the most feared men in the British Army....I have my own ways of dealing with wee little problems, that may arise from time to time....and I like to take my time crafting a suitable remedy. That may require a lot of research, but the effect is often highly satisfactory! I hope my motivation is always sincere and loving. correction is the prime objective.
