The Cornet M’stard Reports

The ‘Cornet M’stard’ articles all come from the 4th Queens Own Hussars Regimental Journals, submitted by Major Douglas Messenger.

Major Douglas Messenger was ‘C’ Squadron leader, much admired and liked by his subordinates, and he endeared himself to the Regiment as a whole by his regular contributions to the Regimental Journal of witty, topical articles entitled “Cornet Mustard Reports”, which were invariably submissions to the Commanding Officer, or some other authority, explaining or excusing some neglect or derogation of duty and demanding some restorative action or acknowledgement by the said authority, which would confirm his – Cornet Mustard’s – untarnished reputation and integrity.
