______________________________________________________________

When we were sucking on the hind tit in respect of kit a WS19 was all we had.
And there was some confusion when Pamphlet 7 was rewritten & an instruction in opening comms procedure was "Tune Aerials" . Advice for both HF & VHF stuff was included for a while in 1961......... And part-time gunners had to be discouraged from saying "Repeat !" instead of "Say again !" when working with HF was difficult.

Always thought the LS & GC was the Rootie..

____________________________________________________________

Having ploughed through Google to seek an answer, it seems you could have a point Gordon. The BEM has come and gone from time to time since an introduction in 1922 ( I think!), it has been awarded for lesser acts of bravery or meritrious service by the lower orders of servicemen. When it was out of favour, had been withdrawn for a time, it's easy to see how the rooti tag could have been adopted by LS&GC recipients. Equally, without a BEM connection, it's difficult to see why the term "rooti" has any other association with the LS&GC medal. I guess we are both right.

A medal formerly awarded to members of the British Army in India. (1925 — 48).
F. Richards The Good Conduct medal or 'Rooty Gong'...was so called because it was a regular ration-issue, like bread or meat or boots (1936).

Talking about the LS & GC I see that the current crop of youngsters serving only required 15 years service to qualify. If the army shrinks anymore then perhaps it might go down to 10 years !!!! God forbid.

[quote 1 ="Shelldrake"].
............. The Good Conduct medal or 'Rooty Gong'...was so called because it was a regular ration-issue, like bread or meat or boots (1936). [quote 1]

Fair enough Shelldrake ! Somewhere, I can't turn it up now, there's something similar about ]Bread Eating Medals. It looks like there is more than one explanation, just as there seem to be several derivations for " Scaley"...   And in ARSSE it's postulated that Scaley is pay Scale E, except for
the RAF where it refers to anyone in married quarters. Very confusing.

As my old BSM would have said "It's invenereal to me". ....: [/quote 2]

Another acronym reminder !   On a couple of portraits of early COs that hung in a Drill Hall, the boot and spurred figures were noted as having the VD.    Not something to brag about now, but it was the Volunteer Decoration around 1900,  a predecessor to the TD.

Another gunner thing as an aide memoire to remind of variable factors which had to be allowed for when TARAs ( tech assistants RA ) were producing data for pointing the barrels in the right direction.

TI.... Time of flight TE..... air temperature WI..... Wind Speed DOW.... direction of wind.
