One thing we should be thankful for, is the fact that British soldiers seem to be able to have at least an inch or so of hair and are not required to have the buzz cuts (as worn by the gentleman on the left in that pic) that seem to be compulsory for American soldiers.

I find the buzz cuts rather appealling. It does seem that alot of our soldiers are a little tubby. Of course, it's probably all muscle but they're rather wierd. Then again, not all soldiers can look like Leo Di Caprio I suppose.

William’s time in the Army will be divided into two parts. He will spend the first year or so continuing his training to become a fully qualified armoured reconnaissance troop leader and experiencing life as a young officer at regimental duty. This will include commanding a troop of twelve Household Cavalrymen both in barracks and in the field.
Following on from this period of regimental service, Prince William will broaden his focus to encompass familiarisation attachments to the other two Armed Services.
He will also spend time in this second period attaining his own personal military goals, which will emerge as his experience of the Army grows and his specific areas of interest develop

Assuming the applicable laws are similar to ours - and they may not be - it would be the insurance company indemnifying the owner of the vehicle whose agent (driver) was responsible for the accident.

I'll be particularly interested to know the basis upon which the damages are to be calculated, and what sort of percentage reduction will be made for contributory negligence.

I haven't struck this extra comma before and it confuses me. Does this mean 250 thousand pounds, or 2 million 500 thousand pounds, or maybe 2 milllion and 50 thousand pounds?

It is the measly sum of £250,000 or one quarter of a million GBP.
