To get a word in, what was Phantom Bugle?

Phantom Bungle was a 5 day exercise for the Combat Team Commanders course.
It kicked off with the classic covering force withdrawing, reserve demolition malarkey. Lots of probes, patrols and then an advance to contact with a grand finale of a dawn attack on Imber - two up bags of smoke and bangs!
