General (Mildred) Froc of the Borogravian army was once Sergeant Jack Jackrum's commanding officer. The sergeant saved his life by carrying him miles through enemy territory and nursing his wounds. This history, and the knowledge of Froc's first name were probably the most important negotiating tools in Jackrum's bid to defend and reward "his little lads" in the Tenth Foot.

General Froc has twice been given the highest accolade a Borogravian officer can expect: Both the dish Beef Froc and the Froc coat have been named after him/her.

Roundworld annotation

On Roundworld the Duke of Wellington has likewise been honoured with the Beef Wellington and the Wellington boot.
