I was sure there would be, but couldn't find it.
Could you please point-me-in-the-right-direction, i.e. link please?

I think to sum it up
His children may have their faults, don't we all, but none of them seem to be huge

He on the other hand seems to be an arse who is pissed off he can't boast about his children's exploits because they've lived, what most people would consider, relatively normal lives

Ah - the Crackfox beat me to it. He didn't provide his children with private education - the forces (ie the state paid). He will be on an extremely generous pension and is the epitome of the type of 'baby boomers' who are quids in compared to the younger generations. Note I said he is of a type as not all boomers have had an easy time of it.

I agree. He is a totally different generation and doesn't seem to appreciate how different and more difficult, in some ways, life is, for his children.
However, the navy did not pay total school fees. They made a large contribution, but it would have had to be topped up by him.
