GDdrJEEP: this weather!
Capt fat Elvis: its summer Dr! Try opening the hatch on your panzer. Are you making progress?
GDdrJEEP: sorry about that, a tense exchange of fire but the Tummies have gone of for a cuppa so we have driven straight through them and onto objective. They were very good about it really.
Capt fat Elvis: I have mad American chatter on intercom! I thought they weren't supposed to come into the war till 1942
GDdrJEEP: sounds scary, how is your mother?
Capt fat Elvis: she is like a big parrot that keeps a roof over my sorry head
GDdrJEEP: ha ha ja vole

Capt fat Elvis: I think it (the American) might be female, one mo!
GDdrJEEP: i'm back!
GDdrJEEP: sure? I say, what!
Capt fat Elvis: it's a bird (the American) that looks after wild animals in Michigan!
GDdrJEEP: cool, forget the war! something's are more important!
Capt fat Elvis: she's probably a 25 stone bloke called Bubba in a maximum security prison.
GDdrJEEP: don't be choosy Capt fat Elvis: I don't like the name Bubba!
GDdrJEEP: I'm just composing the new Divisional drinking anthem have you got any ideas?
Capt fat Elvis: yes I was concussed on Wednesday and am only just coming round.
Capt fat Elvis: she dumped me! (the American)
Capt fat Elvis: I started taking about nerves and rashes and she just left! GDdrJEEP: oh my god!
Capt fat Elvis: where did I go wrong?
GDdrJEEP: don't worry; maybe you'll see Bubba again
Capt fat Elvis: I'm single again!
GDdrJEEP: she might have run off to get her three gorgeous friends for a group meeting!
Capt fat Elvis: I’m too tired!
Capt fat Elvis: how do I record conversations on intercom by the way?
GDdrJEEP: drag your Private over to the radio and get him to write it all down.
Capt fat Elvis: ok thanks, for someone who worked a week in book burning and pasted up flyers for Nat West I have forgotten a lot!
GDdrJEEP: the Division got its 500th confirmed kill today!
Capt fat Elvis: I saw that a few days ago it was still in the 300’s!
GDdrJEEP: I know, I wonder what people make of it? I don't get much feedback
Capt fat Elvis: can you put up a kills comments board up in the officers mess or write the kills in chalk on the back of your Panzer? Are you driving a Panzer these days?
GDdrJEEP: I am getting Bware to do it, but we do need one, but I don't know when he will get the time as he has seen a lot of combat in the last few days. And in answer to your other question, yes, I'm in the latest 39 model with static light navigation and Anti-Lock caterpillar tracks, its great, get one when you next get blown up. Over…
Capt fat Elvis: my dog wet himself when I told him how well we were doing! How's that for feedback!
GDdrJEEP: I am going to issue a challenge to another clan for the Thursday night drinking club, any clan you want to have a pop at?
Capt fat Elvis: I was in Desert Strikers clan but never drank with or against them, the b(interference)ds never invited me! That's the only clan I know in the area. . . over.
GDdrJEEP: I was thinking of the PFJ clan (people's front of Judea), they are about the same size as us.
GDdrJEEP: and they are a funny lot.
Capt fat Elvis: good name too, lets take them outside!
GDdrJEEP: job done, I'll inform the tribe!
Capt fat Elvis: F (interference) k me! anti tank gun firing at us! Back in a mo. Over!
Capt fat Elvis: that was close! Carry on, we're one 501 kills now! By the way.
GDdrJEEP: I’ll get a couple more holy hand grenades for the PFJ.
Capt fat Elvis: what are they? I want some, oh yes before I forget did you get my order for everything from the Division shop I promised the men in my company something in return for letting me fight from the back.
GDdrJEEP: yes, but the supply of GD branded zyklon B aftershave is getting a bit thin.
Capt fat Elvis: its ok I was sending that to Bubba.
Capt fat Elvis: I don't like him no more.
GDdrJEEP: Ha ha ja vole Bubba is going on officer's mess notice board! What's his number?
Capt fat Elvis: hang on a minuet its armpit dark out here i'm just getting all my units to turn on the frog lights we all fitted this morning.

There was then a loud popping sound a crackle and radio silence. The division are still waiting to make contact with both companies.
