Three Wise Men

It's very late on a cold clear night. There's not a cloud in the sky.

The Company are formed up ready to begin a night attack. There are 17 Warrior vehicle commanders listening intently to the radio net.

They are awaiting for the axis of the advance to be sent over the radio. Some form of reference point or compass bearing will be sent which all vehicles will move on, or parallel to.

Eventually the Company 2iC piped up on the net.

"All callsigns - axis. Reference the prominent star.............."

Officers - don't you just love them.

Well that's H48 you're showing therer, in the constellation of Orion, the Horsehead Nebula. They don't come any more prominent than Camilla, surely?

Sorry, but I don't see the problem. Even when you can see a million stars, ONE of them must be more prominent than the others, surely. (Does that make me good officer material please?)
