Of course, once you went into action, the officers were never known as, sir. It was always just like Bernie and Jack, or Bernie and whatever. We were never allowed to make a nameplate. The only such thing you ... spoke to them as one because the other fellows were always within ear reach, you might say, to be able to pick them off, and if any of the spotters or those who were under protection, they're always looking for someone out in front who is a leader.
