"He would have reached his own by the arrangement of the stars": the British press about the "disappearance" of the Chief of the General Staff during the exercises

102

The British military was trying to find its chief of staff last night after he "disappeared" in the Salisbury Plain in southern England.


General Mark Carlton-Smith, Chief of the British General Staff, was taken to the wrong site during his visit to a 300 square miles training ground. To raise the morale of the troops located here, he intended to appear in front of the battle formations, but left the Wildcat helicopter in the wrong place. The pilots themselves landed the rotorcraft in the wrong place where they expected the general to appear. While the general and several escorts were sorting out the situation, the helicopter had already departed, and Carlton-Smith was left alone with his assistants on an unfamiliar deserted site.

Things like this happen more often than you think.
- another general explained to the British press about this, who asked not to be named. In his words, Mark is a "highly qualified special forces soldier" [previously headed SAS - an analogue of the Russian special operations forces] and "can easily get to his own and by the location of the stars."

The army officials who were waiting for the general tried to reach him by mobile phone, but he was out of reach.

They realized that the head of the army had disappeared. His visit was really a big deal and they had everything planned.
- explained the source to The Sun.

According to the British press, when the general's landing site was nevertheless established, the officials who met him rushed there. However, the army officially claims that everyone was aware of where the general was - "just 600 meters from the meeting place."

    "Carlton-Smith was left alone with his assistants in an unfamiliar desert site."
    Subordinates and people are perhaps not considered.
    Since I'm alone.
    Although Salisbury is apparently really scary.
    "The British military tried to find its Chief of General Staff last night after he 'disappeared' in the Salisbury Plain."
    There is horror, Newbie wanders there at night.

          The British claim that the Chief of Staff is not a newbie! :)) But WADA and British scientists are still silent about this :)))

            where the general is - "just 600 meters from the meeting point"

            Did the British themselves understand how they omit their commando general with such words?
            Having found himself 600 meters from the planned point, he could not go out to his own. Of course I would have made it through the stars, but there was a day ... bully

                  He is British, BRITISH and that says it all. In the Far East, too, in nature, there is not everywhere a reception, so the locals got the hang of it - they fill SMS, press Send and ... throw up the device. At the top of the trajectory, the message goes away.

            You shouldn't laugh. Yesterday on NTV showed a fragment. In some city in Britain, two amateurs staged a display of TOPOGRAPHIC maps of Britain, bought in Europe after the collapse of the ATS. There were such maps, it was said that you would not find such maps in Britain itself, and they showed a video. On these maps all-and-capacity bridges, all heights, all small villages.

                        One officer who served in Germany told me He took a bra with him to the gun of a soldier. argued with the Germans that he would drink a tray of vodka and get out on his own feet. / 11 cups of 100 grams on a tray. The soldier drank everything in one gulp and left. / The officer's Germans watered the whole evening

                        You probably did not quite correctly understand what the interlocutor was talking about, because the Germans have a norm of 20 grams, but as a rule they order "hollow", that is. 40 grams. That is why 11 "hollows" are 440 grams, which is quite within the power of our strong-build man.
                        But to drive a soldier to a gashtet officer and give him a drink there is guaranteed to fly out of the group of troops in 24 hours, because the Germans themselves could have laid the ground, not to mention the commander of this officer.

                        There was cheap vodka, so they could drink for their own. And it was not customary to drink at the expense of the Germans, but treating them was in the order of things. Although I will not hide, some Germans were very loyal to us, especially when our people lived among them.

      The estimated book value of the ACS Dana ShKH vz. 77 is $ 62. The price of one modernized wheeled ACS vz. 000 Dana in the M77 version, according to the contract between Excalibur Army and Ukrspetsexport, is 2 million dollars.

      That's okay, but the helicopter landing and then taking off from 600 meters away did not notice the greeters - this is generally super.

              For your information, their artillery systems are successfully sold in the world, and Iran, if memory serves, even produces them under license.
              There is a video on the network with an analysis of the characteristics of various artillery systems of the DPRK and their number by leading Russian experts on this topic.
              And if you look at it, it is clear that if North Koreans with their weapons were in the NKR instead of Armenians, the war would have ended in Ankara.

    "just 600 meters from the meeting point".
    So maybe you had to shout, and not try to navigate by the stars? I don't know how about how I would get by the location of the stars, but he definitely did not have a navigator, without which they lose their orientation.

      And the Americans have had blunders during joint events with us:
      In a word, they took the American by hand to the plane, and our officers slightly confused the board - they put him in another crew, telling him to be delivered to his destination. As always happens, the plane flew in a completely different direction for thousands of kilometers, and the dry Yankees handed over to the local chiefs at another airfield. Great was the surprise of all the participants in the booze when, when asked "where is the American?" everyone claimed that he flew away, but why he did not reach his destination, no one could understand.
