In an Army Co-operation lecture room, Royal Australian Air Force personnel undergo instructions in artillery reconnaissance on a miniature range. Communications between air-crew and artillery posts are all given in code; thus "Mike-four-shot-over" refers to a particular target shown at the end of the pointer of "Blab stick" held by an army instructor.
