- "What you don't know don't hurt you, Sharpe."
"Beg pardon, sir, but in my experience what you don't know usually gets you killed."
- — Munro and Sharpe
Major Mungo Munro was one in a succession of spymasters under Wellington. From Scotland, he fancied himself a piper, but his talent was infinitesimal.
He had a sharp sense of humour, and an entirely pragmatic outlook. He sent Richard Sharpe on perilous missions several time, setting him up in order to flush out spies and traitors.
