The Four Types of Officers… 😃

General Freiherr von Hammerstein-Equord, the chief of the German Army, had a method of selecting officers. According to Exchange, a Berlin newspaper, as following was his answer to a query as to how he judged his officers:

“I divide my officers into four classes as follows: The clever, the industrious, the lazy, and the stupid. Each officer always possesses two of these qualities.

Those who are clever and industrious I appoint to the General Staff.

Use can under certain circumstances be made of those who are stupid and lazy.

The man who is clever and lazy qualifies for the highest leadership posts. He has the requisite nerves and the mental clarity for difficult decisions.

But whoever is stupid and industrious must be got rid of, for he is too dangerous.”

Military Traditions of South Asia… 😄😄

Subedaar Deedar Singh, from the Armoured Corps of Indian Army, was proud to be in a Regiment that was previously served by his grandpa and dad, and six uncles.

When he got married he had only one desire: “have lots of sons to serve the Regiment, and keep the family tradition alive.” So when the first born arrived, he named him “Leftaan Singh” (Lieutenant Singh)… after all, he was the first in the hierarchy!

With each new arrival, the formula of home grown promotions was adopted and the kids were named Kaptaan (Captain) Singh, Major Singh, Karnail (Colonel) Singh, Bargader (Brigadier) Singh, and finally Jarnail (General) Singh. Subedaar was grateful that with Guru’s kirpa he had achieved his life’s mission.

Fate had something else in store though, when he was blessed with a daughter. Subedaar sahab was stumped and paced up and down to figure out an appropriate name. His wife, seeing his frustration called out, “Gal suno ji, bibi da nau *ARMOURED KAUR* theek rahe ga.”

The CIA had an opening for an assassin. After all the background checks, interviews, and testing were done, there were three finalists. two men and a woman.

For the final test, the CIA agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun. “We must know that you will follow our instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Inside this room, you will find your wife sitting in a chair. Kill Her!!!”
The man said, “You can’t be serious. I could never shoot my wife.” The agent said, “Then you’re not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go home.”

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes. Then the man came out with tears in his eyes. “I tried, but I can’t kill my wife.” The agent said, “You don’t have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.”

Finally, it was the woman’s turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman. She wiped the sweat from her brow. “This gun is loaded with blanks”, she said. “I had to beat him to death with the chair.”
