MECHANICS ASSISTANT REMEMBERS WHAT THE MASTER SAID: IF YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING YET, JUST DO AS YOUR TOLD... Unsung heros of any army are the mechanics they keep the engines of war running. The designers and engineers build, but its the mechanics that keep the designs running.

DON'T HAVE TO KNOW NOTHIN, JUST DO AS YOUR TOLD, AND LEARN: I've always remembered what that old maintenance Sergeant told me: Sergeant! if you don't know anything yet, just do as your told, and learn. And through the years, I've always passed it on... Best wishes Bill

ORIGINAL MEN IN BLACK: Its the machanics that keep the engines of war running. The Tiger was prone to mechanical failure if, periodic maintenance procedures were not followed. SUGGESTED READING: TIGER TANK AT WAR By Michael Green Publisher Zenith Press ISBN 9780760331125

"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
