Actually WOG was an acronym. It stood for "Worthy Oriental (Orientals in the sense of non-Europeans) Gentlemen." Common wealth troops would use a much more disparaging term for people of color, . Some of them complained to the British government, and they forced their troops to call them "Worthy Oriental Gentlemen." Which was shortened to WOG.

The way I heard it was that after WWII, when Ethiopia was liberated by the brits and emperor Haile Selassie ( the Lion of Judah, etc., etc,) was returned to the throne, the brits where wont to call the emperor "that black bastard" because I guess he really was insufferable. After Selassie heard about this and bitched to the military brass, they commanded their troops to call him "that Wonderful Old Gentleman" i.e., wog. Since then it has been used in most of the former british african colonies as a derogatory term for "blecks". The story came from a Robert Ruark book (could've been Uhuru) and is probably apocryphal. I find it quaint that it's being used to describe canadian REMFs. BTW, nice post Canadian Tactical! edited to spell candadian correctly

How about: Wog This chiefly British phrase is a holdover from the days of the Empire and is a disparaging term for an Indian (from India, not America), an Arab, or any other Asian. More recently, wog has been used to refer to any foreigner, or even jokingly to anyone outside the greater London area. The phrase is commonly thought to be an acronym. What the acronym supposedly stands for, however, varies in the telling: Westernized Oriental Gentleman Worthy Oriental Gentleman Wily Oriental Gentleman Wonderful Oriental Gentleman Working On Government Service This last was supposedly emblazoned on the back of shirts worn by Suez Canal workers. The numerous variations and a total lack of any evidence to suggest any acronym is the origin lead to the conclusion that these are not correct etymologies. While the origin is not known for certain, most sources agree that it is likely short for golliwogg, a blackfaced doll with frizzy hair. Golliwogg was coined by Bertha Upton in two children's books published in 1895, The Adventures of Two Dutch Dolls and A 'Golliwogg'. By 1907, the golliwogg was in generic use for anything Asian. Wog is believed to be a clipped form of Golliwogg.

WOG - A shortened version of Pollywog. A pollywog is someone who has yet to cross the equator and be initiated as a Shellback. It is also used by naval personell to say that you are untraveled and dont know squat.

KevinB,

What manufacturer is that from?

I've seen something very similar to it, design and sizewise, worked very very well.

Some of my aqquaintances and myself were very impressed by it.

Keld,

Sorry I was out while you replied and the thread sunk below my active topics


Insight Tech makes it (IIRC) it is one of a few competing for our TWS

VERY VERT IMPRESSIVE.

looking at that web of crap hanging off of those guys, it's comforting it's not used in combat yet. Get too busy messing with that brick on your arm or the antenna farm on your head and someone will sneak up behind you and clock you with a rock.

Howdy yall!
Those pics of the land system show it has come a long way in the last few years. I saw a setup at Aberdeen proving grounds that was way worse and was in the 50-70+ lb. range. It was all battery. I hadn't seen or heard anything on it in a while. Great pics.

Path,
Do you know if those are working model systems or mockups?
(I have not played LW in a more than a year - and doubt it came that far but...)

Gee wonder when the XM-8 by GD(L) will be featured with the LW troops

No clue... don't really follow it that much because it changes so frequently there is not point in trying to keep up.
