Number 66 must have done something drastically wrong to become an ex-Admiral, after all the General retained his rank even though he was clearly no longer in the Army. And of course there’s Number 14 who was said to be an ex-Count, why he should have to give up his title, if he was stripped of it, is unknown. Perhaps he behaved like his ancestors and was put away in The Village as a place of confinement. He was probably forced to give up his title, as Number 6 was forced to give up his job for some reason. Well he is an ex-secret agent!
Be seeing you
