Who's going to be leading your Sapper section Martin?

They will need steady nerves AND steady hands! :twisted:

Special equipment for role;
Wire cutters
Lighter
Spare underpants

We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."

Am I correct in assuming both promotions are on an acting, unpaid basis?

Unfortunately, Pte Angel did not want the promotion, so is currently undergoing Field Punishment Number 1. The British Army always gives you a choice.

Quite right. How does the saying go? "The Army can't make you do anything - but it can make you wish you had".

A high rate of attrition amongst ORs is a sacrifice I'm willing to make on your behalf.

IIRC FP No.1 was abolished in the 1920s, however if you want to do it, go ahead.

When the war is over we shall consult the list, and try you for war crimes :)

You're making the incorrect assumption that you will win the war, Jerry.

If this is the rate at which the Brits promote their NCO's & SNCO's before battle, I look so forward in helping them choose further "field promotions" during battle courtesy of my MG42 :rofl:
