What does COWO stand for?


Book Reviewer
I'm a matelot so disregard as you please but I know the BOWO (pronounced BOW BOW....?) was the Brigade Ordnance Warrant Officer - I sat opposite him for many m's on H6 and I am certain he was a RLC capbadge.


Wah shield on...........Command Ordnance Warrant Officer.

Senior Non Commisioned Stacker in LFHQ
FFS..... The COWO usually stands for little old ladies on the bus and occasionally when the National Anthem is played whilst he stacks the HQLF blankets. Other than that he is normally sat on his arrse.
