The contents include day-to-day skills such as how to siege a castle, fire a longbow, correctly clean a Maxim machine-gun and capture an enemy trench; sporting science such as jousting, fencing and boxing (Queensbury's Rules, of course); domestic essentials such as how to hunt, kill, clean and cook a wild boar; and priceless secrets of sartorial selection (codpiece - useful for storing your wallet and keys - or cuirass? Top hat or tank jacket?). To British airmen and soldiers, knights and pages, gentlemen and rogues, we say: pip pip and what what! Stiffen your lip and tighten your sword belt!
