The comparison of Army terminology explains that "aiming off" (UK) = leading fire" (US) and a "buffer cylinder" (UK) is a recoil cylinder (US) and a "communication trench" (UK) is an "Approach trench (US) .................zzzzzz
However, Some genius staff officer decided that the RAF terminology pp 80-84 needed explanations for "stooge about" "prang a kite", "collect a gong," "shooting a line" and "shot down in flames" Comedy genius...
