Woodbine is an old name for a sweet smelling climbing plant called the Honeysuckle. One of our tobbaco firms thought that it was a very good name for a partularly cheap and smelly brand of  cigarette - and being cheap they became popular with the squaddies.

So a translation would be "The enemy has lit us up like a cigarette - let us make haste and get out of this particularly combustable vehicle"

Although I'm not sure if they were around in WW2.

I don't know if others feel the same, but I was disappointed when WG pulled the option to have the tank crew speak accordingly to their nationality.

Of course you will need at least two voices, one for the commander, an officer so a "Rupert" carrying the classic Upper Class British accent.

Then the rest of the crew would be non-com ranks so would have regional accents and use more "below decks" language (as Governor Rex Hunt called it)

So... British officers are recruited only from the 'Upper Class' and landed gentry? And anybody without a commission is some chav from the rough side of the tracks? Not withstanding, the vast majority of tank commanders did not hold a commission anyway. What a load of absolute nonsense.

I get the vera lynn reference but would  "Radio is up Sir We have the BBC on radio One" be better?

BBC is correct timeline, but Radio 1 came out in 1967.

So, your suggestions looked good DarkJanne and yes brits like to speak modestly we're not gung ho when we fight in war it's with professionalism and gallows humour. We leave gungho to our American friends.

Also wafu_vasco is correct most commanders were NCOs (non comms) and even most of the commisioned officers where not upper class, tankies were generally engineering types, the toffs (public school types - Ruperts etc) preferred the infantry with their past family glories etc.

By the way DarkJanne are you just playing here or is there some hope that WG will use your suggestions?
