To provide a direction or suggested headings to VFR aircraft as a method for radar identification or as an advisory aid to navigation.PHRASEOLOGY−(Identification), PROCEED (direction)−BOUND, (other instructions or information as necessary)

Also - In this case, to disambiguate an instruction to a non-english native speaker it wasn't such a bad idea ?
