      Well for full dress the sheets are embroidered in gold wire, but it was soon

      found that the more elaborate embroidery kept the general awake and impaired

      his performance on the battlefield so an undress version of simple silk
      embroidery was adopted. the cot itself is the same for all ranks but the
      uprights of a field Marshals cot are built as elongated versions of the
      baton! :-P
