Ministry of Defence procurement: a parable

I found, lying around in a pile in my study, a wallet which I must have picked up at a trade show in a past life. It's got the Ministry of Defence logo on the front: eagle in front of crossed swords in front of anchor. I wonder how many committee meetings it took to agree on that order, and how senior the attending major-generals, air vice-marshals and rear-admirals were.

It is commendably thin and light, and has a convenient coin purse. However, it is capable of holding precisely one bank card.
