Marshal Foch and Marshall Outteridge

Marshall Outteridge was your Editor’s late uncle. Family lore maintains that he was named after Marshal Foch, the French commander during the Great War. Marshall’s mother thought Marshall was Foch’s first name (which was actually Ferdinand), not realising that Marshal was a French military rank.
