BATCO  = Battle Code. The successor of SLIDEX

BATCO I never saw but SLIDEX of course and GRIDDLE, was in use.
There was a code no one seems to have heard of, DIREX. I think it was a one time pad.
In our early Honest John days the call to action was "NUCREP RED" ! (Nowhere as near alarming as "Take Post, MIKE target !). Line Delta of the NUCREP was the target coordinates and they were given in DIREX.
I bet Sheldrake remembers.


I do indeed although being a Grunt we weren't allowed anywhere that sort of stuff!! Suspect Suspect 

Looks like I'm doomed to be the only one who ever handled DIREX !  Sad

Who remembers this set of initials :-

PULHEEMS

16. This is a system of medical classification introduced in 1947, and the word was coined from it. It means:-

P - Physical condition of the person examined.
U - The upper limb.
L - The locomotion.
H - The hearing.
E - The right eye.
E - The left eye.
M - The mental capacity.
S - The emotional stability.

17. Beneath each letter a figure of from 1 to 8 is inserted, according to the disability under that subject. The figure 2 is the most common one used, an assessment of all figures 1 would almost indicate a 'superman', and would seldom, if ever, be used.

PULHEEMS EMPLOYMENT STANDARD (PES)

18. This standard is mainly obtained from a soldiers PULHEEMS, and indicates the part of the world he is fitted to serve. The PES is expressed by one of the following terms:-

(a) FE - Forward Everywhere, in any part of the world for general duties.
(b) FT - Forward Temperate, the same as for FE but in temperate climates.
(c) BE - Base Everywhere, the same as for FE but in Base Areas only
(d) BT - Base Temperate, the same as for BE but in areas with temperate climate.
(e) LE - Line of Communication Everywhere, restricted to general duties in L of C or Base Areas in any part of the world.
(f) LT - Line of Communication Temperate, general duties in L of C areas with temperate climate.
(g) HO - Home Only, duties in the United Kingdom only.

19. Pulheems and PES assessments must be published in unit Part II or Part III Orders. The responsibility for these assessments rests with the CO.

20. The definition of the term 'Temperate Climate' can be found in the pamphlet 'Instructions for the Medical Administration of Officers and Other Ranks, 1950' para 73.

Ah, ha my dear Generalfeldmarshal, how do you carry your interimstab AND a white stick.

This is a FM's Interimstab : (a form of everyday Baton as they were too valuable to use every day.)
