Charge 7
I could tell you stories that would curl your hair.

My favorite was Lt. "Spud" who having newly risen to battery XO was about to perform his first "hip shoot" (hasty emplacement and shoot while on the move). Thank God he was being evaluated. He was about to fire 3200 out (in a the complete opposite direction of what he should have done). Would've been bad enough but when we calculated out where his first round would've likely landed it worked out to have been just about a bullseye on the post commander's mansion.

Lt Spud:"Sir, funny story about your mansion. I accidently blew it up and well, everything is gone, Sir. So I'll be on my way, Sir."
Top Sgt: "How'd the post commander take it, Sir?"
Lt Spud: "He took it fine, Top, he didn't even wake up."

So one a few years ago asked about a chap who worked for us and had applied for job with his firm. I was happy to inform him "That if he ever worked for them they would be extremely lucky." Alas the chap must have twigged as he did not get the job.
