Montgomery

In 1944, Alan Brooke, chief of the imperial general staff, remarked to King George VI that field marshal Montgomery, fresh from his victory over Rommel's forces in the Battle of El Alamein, was clearly "a very good soldier." But, he added, "I think he is after my job."

"I thought," George playfully replied, "he was after mine!"
