    Gunfire suitably administered first thing this morning.

    Did Gunfire for the people I work with in Kuwait this morning. Re-educated attached Navy, RAF and other Services on the real way to start the day.

    Who said Kuwait was dry?

    Cowhead tell your SSM to give me a call when he gets his weekend trip down South.

  14. SPECIAL ORDER, NO. 6. to the Tank Corps from Brigadier HUGH ELLES Commanding - November 19, 1917

    1. To-morrow the Tank Corps will have the chance for which it has been waiting for many months, to operate on good going in the van of the battle.

    2. All that hard work and ingenuity can achieve has been done in the way of preparation.

    3. It remains for unit commanders and for tank crews to complete the work by judgment and pluck in the battle itself.

    4. In the light of past experience I leave the good name of the corps with great confidence in your hands.

    5. I propose leading the attack of the Centre Division.
  15. to all the tankies past and present in afghan or iraq we will never forget the sacrifices of the men before us or the ones to follow forever green
