Marbles - I've already fired off a letter to The Times pointing out the error of their ways. Mind you as tomorrow's letter page is going to be swamped by the Chilcot report I doubt if it will get printed, but have a look just in case.

As a Times reader I have to admit that The Telegraph does these things a lot better, I think they may have a few journos who actually know something about the armed forces. I doubt if there is anyone at The Times who would know the difference between a Lieutenant Colonel and a Lance Corporal!

One point, though, those are Royal Rhodesian Air Force wings, which are quite correct, as Dorehill was serving in the RRAF.
