We've got a big problem. The new French exchange officer just read the railcar specs, and it seems the capacity is 40 men OR eight vehicles.

Ok The need to support the Civilian Police enforcing Covid Lockdown Separations, no longer needed. The Army is put back in the box.

OK Driver, if on the battlefield you suffer a indicator failure, Instead of reporting the tank as U/S, you put your left handout to show you wish to turn left, and visa versa... Got it? Oh and for a full stop if the brake lights fail you put your hand up vertically...

Hoskins, I ordered you to ensure the armored support was in train when the infantry attacked at 1300 hours. This isn't quite what I meant.

Remembering what happened last time, the Sarge checked each handbrake himself before the train moved off.

Sorry you will have to stop there, it’s first class only further forward, and the Major General is taking his wife and his car down to Devon for a working week.

The Railways worker took umbrage when they told him they were going to the Battle of the Bulge. "I'm sick of these stereotypes" he muttered as he walked away.

The new UK's Main Battle Tank struggled to get up the loading slope, dunno how it will manage charging cross country, and comes across a small hillock. ...

Jeremy Clarkson later regretted challenging the tank corps to bring along their mates for a 10th anniversary remake of his Range Rover vs Challenger tank driving round a muddy field in Salisbury. Challenge

Railway Person, no no no this is the 05.43 platform 6 to Didcot, you want the 05.34 platform 9 to Croydon. Your not the first to make that mistake, quick get your luggage you might just make it.
