The Sunday Telegraph dated 25th February 2007 had an article about the “Cock-up Club” based in the Folly Wine Bar, Petersfield, Hampshire. The club celebrates “curiosity, passion and cock-up”. Two OFs, Richard Vaughan-Griffith K60-64 and Charles Blackmore K65-75, were founder members. As both of these are also listed in the Distinguished OFs, you might expect them to have some extreme passion for adventure to qualify. Perhaps they exemplify the description of another great adventurer, Miles Smeeton, who was once described by his commanding officer as “having enormous capacity for getting out of very difficult situations ……. that he perhaps should not have got into in the first place”.
