Biography: 

Spoomer's uncle is the "corps commander, the K.G." (513). "K.G." stands for Knight of the Order of the Garter, the most prestigious of Britain's chivalric honors. He is thus clearly a member of the upper class, and our narrator thinks him a snob who predicts that the outbreak of war "will be the making of the army" (513). The narrator seems to attribute Spoomer's rank to nepotism.
