Sir Oliver Leese was ex-Guards (Grenadier, I think) and was later Slim's Commanding Officer for a while in India/Burma. In the most recent biography of Slim it mentions Leese wearing plus fours. Apparently he was a real martinet. He and Slim had a falling out resulting in Slim's resignation (although he was reinstated later).
