Col. Abrams, US Army: I understand your boys are having trouble getting through to Mandalay. That seems odd, the Grants really ought to be tearing up the opposition.
Lt. Gen, Alexander: Oh, indeed they do, but we never seem to be able to exploit our superiority. I half think it is the new American communication equipment. Very high qualtiy, you understand but the instructions seem written by a Neanderthal.
Col. Abrams, US Army: May I see the set?
Lt. Gen, Alexander: Indeed. <they walk to the com tent and the Col. walks promptly to the set>
Col. Abrams, US Army: Ah, here is your problem. You need to set the "pursue" code to FGD 135 <makes the adjustment> A grain of wheat bulb suddenly glows behind a green filter next to a stencil that reads "PURSUE".
Lt. Gen, Alexander: Bloody Hell!
