Sir: I was saddened to see in all the media pictures of St David's Day that no one in Wales now wears a leek. It seems that only expatriates like me now sport our ancient emblem. Have they all gone soft in the Principality? Is this why our national rugby team now does do badly? The cartoon in today's paper (3 March) reinforces my disappointment that Prince Charles did not set a good example. Would his ancestor Henry V have won at Agincourt if he had been the sort of Welshman to prefer a daffodil to a leek.
