        Well Greadaigh Fúibh is more gramatically correct however "Iompaigh Thart" isn't, it should be Thart Iompaigh as given when at the stad!!

        Cock up in the foot drill manual that has just stuck.

        and when was Bogtar Tuailimí last pronounced correctly??

              Yes but my mother is from Catháir Domhainall in Kerry and She's a teacher and battered Irish grammer into me since the day I was born!! So she supercedes the Manual!!

                It has always sounded like "Bogtar Tuairmí" to me (which could be translated as "release opinions").

                There isn't much standardisation of commands and less of pronunciation - every NCO seems to have their own flavour and ... lol ... some of it isn't even Irish

                  No its hericy!
                  Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil...prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...

                            The Manual can Be wrong thats why you can suggest ammendments to the Manual, and who here's seen a FD manual under 30 years old!!!

                            And I doubt Captiol Punishment was in the Defence Act!
