The boffins have come up with this meetings translator. For example, if you enter "Stovepipe" here it then gives you the English meaning over there.

Three days now and I'm no closer to understanding why those boffin chaps put us in here either, but I must say I like the way that pressing the white button makes a banana pop out of the slot, eh what?

Good morning Gentlemen ...

Good turnout on this one chaps and great to see a few 'new' faces joining the madhouse that is PPRuNe Mil CapCom

It's also pretty clear those amongst us who regularly fed the Mess Fruit machine

First of all ... a Special Mention for Nutty as he managed to reference Decca TANS ... another mysterious bit of technology

3rd Place - Pontius Navigator ...

"Well it fits the door perfectly, but how do we get out ?"
2nd Place - Danny42C ...

"Why don't we have a competent NCO to work this thing ? - Can't expect us to operate it, what, what !"
1st Place - Flap Track6 ...

"Forfar Athletic 2, Queen of the South 2. Bl00dy Hell, Sir, you've got eight score draws - get on the phone to Littlewoods quick !"
Over to you FT6 ... PM sent ...

Coff
