As was the way with the British army, there's allways a little saying, usually obscene to help remember stuff like that.
In the case of Eastings and Northings we were told
"allways get across it before yer get up it !"
Needless to say, I never forgot it !

There was a thread on this . . . but I can't find it. So "Oh dear" should suffice.

There was a movie called "Salt" on the other day, (the fact that Angelina Jolie was the main character has nothing to do with me watching it by the way ! Cool .
The nasty N. Koreans are dragging Angelina out of a building to take her to a prisoner exchange. Outside the door is an armoured vehicle that, at first I thought was a Scorpion but looking again, realised that it was a 432 with a Fox turret on its roof. (Cannon removed and a lump of old pipe installed). There were two of them in the scene.

There was an old 432 visible in "Mars attacks !" too.

It seems odd, with all the old junk the Yanks have stacked up from their armed forces, that they buy our old tat.

The TOC H canteens sold lovely fresh rolls in Berlin and in the Zone.They also sold great fresh buns and pastries. Very Happy Very Happy

The TOCH in Hemer kept me alive in the early seventies. That and the Schnelly. The food in our cookhouse was awful.
