Senior NCO-isms... we've all heard them. Mainly on courses such as PCBC when high quality SNCOs embellish their well-rehearsed lessons with big words that they learnt on their promotion courses. However are there any out there that beat the substitution of the word 'Specific' with 'Pacific'? For example: "Excuse me sirs gents, please look in to the model and listen to the brief on the PACIFIC threat that you will be faced with on this TEWT" For the whole of my time as a subaltern I was convinced we were waiting for an attack by the Japanese! I open it to the floor for further example.
