Well done Taffy2

Douglas Reeman, the novelist, who has died aged 92, was a master of the nautical adventure yarn, with worldwide sales of more than 34 million books; under the pseudonym Alexander Kent he wrote a long series following the career of the Royal Navy officer Richard Bolitho from the American Revolution to the Napoleonic wars, while the novels he published under his own name often drew on his experiences in the Second World War.
The typical hero of a Reeman novel is an amiable but bloody-minded sailor who sidesteps attempts by his bungling superiors to prevent him from engaging with the enemy on his own terms, and scores a famous victory against the odds. The brass hats patronise him on account of his lower social standing, and one of the most twittish usually ends up as his love rival.
Among the best of the Reeman books are HMS Saracen (1965), in which Captain Richard Chesnaye tries to prove that...

9) stole monies given to a charity to do repair works on something he was ultimately responsible for.
10) Was one of the most hated bosses on a national company.
11) He enjoyed the trappings of power including a Daimler (although this had been a gift from an admirer which he had been reluctant to accept and was only persuaded to do so to avoid hurting the feelings of the donor), an executive aeroplane which he and other Board members used and a flat in Eaton Square which had increased in value by the time it was sold after his retirement

You have him Sir Reg.
The Trustees of the Disaster Fund, which had been raised by public appeal, had been put under "intolerable pressure" to make a contribution of £150,000 (£2 million at 2016 prices[9]) to cover the cost of removing the tips – an action that was "unquestionably unlawful" under charity law – and the Charity Commission took no action to protect the Fund from this dubious, indeed dishonest, misappropriation of funds.
Good news was the money was repaid by the Welsh assembly £2 million in 2016. Bad news they paid NO interest on that money.
