They all nod and agree.
The first patrol tonight will be Omar Abdul Ishim and Dave Smith
Too subtle for some.
In the same vein.
How many Brits here remember the TV series “It ain't half hot mum.”
Windsor Davies who played the Battery Sergeant Major “SHUT UP” Williams played his character to a "T" exactly like a real BSM. He was on a TV talk show and was asked if he based his character on a real person.
Windsor Davies replied that he based his character on his own RSM while being demobbed after WW2. The RSM was wandering up and down the queue of troops when he saw a chap in Jungle Greens wearing his bush hat. The RSM wandered over to him and asked, “WHO THE F^%& DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, ROY ROGERS?” he approached another soldier who snapped to attention, the RSM bellowed, “STAND TO ATTENTION YOU SCRUFFY LITTLE MAN, YOUR RIGHT THUMB IN LINE WITH THE SEAM OF YOUR TROUSERS.” The soldier said, “I can't Sir, I was wounded at Dunkirk and my hand is partially paralyzed. The RSM's voice softened, “I'm sorry to hear that lad.” Then bellowed “ BUT THAT DON'T STOP YOU CLEANING YOUR FINGER NAILS DOES IT?”
