    Just been talking to an old mate of mine who told me a story of a german traffic cop in the early eighties directing a lot of civi and millatary traffic.
    Apparentley the policeman waved some civi traffic through took a step back and started to wave through some Abbots but got his arm too close and shoved it into the moving tracks of one of them.
    Anyone know any more ?
     
  2. Have heard this story before, possibly in "Try Not To Laugh, Sergeant Major" by Robert McGowan and Jeremy Hands (ISBN 0 7515 1087 4). I'm not going to check though. I suspect it's another example of a military myth.
