I'm just wondering what conversations were over heard or discussions by officers/nco's that made one wonder just why some of these people held their rank? Any body out there care to share?

Ah yes, talking to a Brigadier in 1 (Br) Corps who wondered why the "Bird table was covered in maps", answer "because that's what we plot the battle on sir.", him "Oh, what a good idea."

PS BIRD Table = Battle Indicator Task Designator" Basically a huge map of the operational area laid out on a massive table.

I always made sure that I didn't get close enough to overhear any of their conversations - it was difficult enough to understand what they were talking about when speaking directly to you! Laughing Laughing Laughing
