    Quote from the ARRSEpedia:

    Verbal response to a bone question asked by a superior. Bone questions asked by juniors are dealt with differently.

    Further to earlier explanations, within the British Army, also used in response to an answer to an obvious question. This is a question that you have set the other person up to answer. Can become quite frustrating as you become paranoid answering any question in case it is a Wah!

    Steve: "Is that a can of beer in your hand Bill?"

    Bill: "Yeah!"

    Steve: "Wah!"

    Bill: "Bugger, been Wah'd again!"

    The fact MO's are very economical in their labours would tell you a story. :wink:
