At a guess:

POL : Petroleum Oil Lubricants
MTWO: Motor Transport warrant Officer

Welcome to ARRSE!

POL Point = Petrol, Oil and Lubrication Point. Kinda like an Army Petrol station, if you will.

MTWO = Motor Transport Warrant Officer. The big man in charge of the all the green vehicles the Army owns, bit like a Fleet Manager.

While we're on the subject, can anyone tell me what MFO stands for, as in MFO Boxes? No one ever seems to know!

Its a typo. Should read Pol Pot. He was a baddie.

MTWO is a term of endearment. My Tremendous Warrent Officer.

Do you play World Of Warcraft? I'm a 9th level Palladin Knight, but one hates to boast.

Why is it a "ZAP" number?

Why the L at the start of weapons (i.e. L85, L1A1)?

Why does my Tp Sgt beat me up so often?

Because they call it in when you get zapped

Dunno

Because you deserve it (that's what they told me, anyhow). :)
