    Shows the Minister for War, Fox Maule (2nd Baron Panmure), pouring the substance of bottle inside the collar of Richard Airey, the Quartermaster General to the Army in the Crimea, who had been accused of inefficiency. He explains that the substance is his '"Grand, General Military Renovator", or "New Commission Detergent"' which can remove all kinds of stains, 'mud-spot, mould, or fungus'. This is possibly a reference to Panmure's reforms of the British Army's √©lite.
