Lots of information about Lords, named Robert, appointed to do things. I did like the one about Lord Frederick Roberts (1832-1914. 1st Earl Roberts, and Roberts of Kandahar) who led a successful siege in Afghanistan - too bad he's not around to-day - we might be able to end this terrible war.
I also had a chuckle about the British version of the term - " Robert's your father's brother". Canadians have apparently shortened the entire phrase to just "Bob". I'll opt for the happy medium.
The female term is "Fanny's your aunt". I don't have an aunt Fanny so I have to settle for Lil, who is actually a great aunt - so, " Lilian's your grandmother's sister."?
