Thinks...now why did I select Radio technician as a trade, valves, wires, solder. Thought it was 2 baked beans tins and a very long piece of string...

Thinks...now why did I select armourer as a trade? Springs, breech, muzzle. Thought it was painted broom handles and flashing lights....

Thinks...Why did I select Pilot Officer as a trade, thought it was all sitting round bars, driving MG's and have a girl at each airfield. Then Hitler tries to invade.

Very good Barrington-Smythe but did you get any of the Fokkers?

But, those Fokkers were Messerschmitts, Sir...

(Sorry!)

The re-make of Battle of Britain was heavily criticised for anachronisms - here, for instance, we see hi-viz long before it became the be-all and end-all of military life.

Po Buster reporting, well came across this baddie and gave him all 1400 rounds, last seen spiralling down to the drink. On a different topic, has anyone seen Po Nutty?
Officer, no not heard from him since this morning, but sure he'll be round later today.

Two men being pile-driven beneath the port wing as they balance it on their heads: "I say, would one of you please move the bloomin' aircraft? We're already up to our arses in sod!"

Having flown one aircraft from Castle Bromwich to Kemble, you still expect a BoB Medal?

If Scotland gains independence McHoskins, you'll be their Air Force... and as you have a dinghy in your seat pack, you can be their Navy too.
