How the Americans phrase things different to the British Army: Shy

NCO's would go for something more along the lines of :

"Don't drive this f*****g sh*t heap to that f*****g position you f*****g twatty c**t !!!

Lacks the biblical feel of Fred's version but is probably as a effective when in a scrape Blush

"I say, my dear fellow (yelling across the open terrain), might you mind, terribly, holding off for a bit firing those anti-tank projectiles this way? It is, after all, tea time and Sir Charles is most particular: there's commotion enough here unloading these bloody foot soldiers from their vehicles - what with the gas and fumes and mud from the tracks - and, mind you, Sir Charles' boots were just polished this morning sotto voce so he's having a bit of a fit, if you catch my meaning. Resume normal voice Right. So there's a good fellow."

Offered and I hope accepted with humor (from US via Newfoundland via England)

Three shall be the number of hexes your loaded truck says from the 5-2 unit, not 1, nor 2, except when thou art counting the range to 3.

Of course accepted, but remember I gave an NCO, not a commissioned officer (Rupert) Wink

I wonder what the "killer rabbit" would look like as a PG unit?

No DF/BF/AT value;
Morale = 11/10
Always attacks on the 30-col of the Assault Table irrespective of terrain. Short-range AT value of 6 (can eat through armor).
Holy Hand Grenades from Antioch attack on the 42-col BF Table. Otherwise, DF & BF suffer a -2 col shift as though the Killer Rabbit were entrenched.
