Response to Nicknames

Hi Graham
I heard them called Stupid Long Rifles but I have heard infrantry call them rifles too.

The point I was making is you don't say ' I'm going get my Fabrique Nationale Self Loading Rifle 7.62mm from the armoury ' or ' pass the Carl Gustav Anti Tank 84mm recoilless rifle please' ( Charlie G ). I believe the current slang now is The general for the Gimpie

Soldiers rarely use the official name for a piece of equipment just like civilians who don't say my ' Toshiba 60 inch flat screen smart television has broken' we just say TV or tele.

Personally I don't have a car I drive a Land Rover ! 😀

Regards
Andrew
