    Found a nice pdf of German Military Abbreviations. I've been looking for something like this for years, and so I figured maybe someone else might be, too.

    Very interesting and useful I have save it on my hard drive. I find it amusing that some of the abbreviations are almost as long as the original word or phrase :lol:

    In the US Air Force, they sometimes called an elevator a "bi-directional transition cell."

    My uncle told me that when he was in the British Army in the 1950s that Toilet paper was called "Army Form Blank other ranks for the use of" Never quite sure if he was pulling my leg but having served myself it wouldn't surprise me if it was true.
