The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    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.
  5. Have come across BOWO, DOWO and FOWO before but never COWO.
  6. Wah shield on...........Command Ordnance Warrant Officer.

    Senior Non Commisioned Stacker in LFHQ
  7. Yeah would be about right then. Said on his E-mail block he worked at HQLF in Andover.

    Many thanks
  8. 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.
  9. If kit and facilities are being sold off / privatised, it will soon stand for CONTRACT Ordnance Warrant Officer.
  10. Cock Out, Wanking Off?
