R U Who ?!?

Posted by Dinky Mind on Sunday, April 18, 2004 in
During the late fifties there were two senior officers in the Navy who had identical initials to their names. Both were RU's. The first was Captian RU Bajwa, commanding Himalaya at Manora, the other was Commander RU Khan, commanding a destroyer.
In those days telephones were rare commodities in the Dockyard and at Manora. One day one RU telephoned the other and it turned out to be one of the most memorable telephone conversations of the Navy.

When the telephone rang, CO Himalaya picked up the reciever and, in the correct service manner, identified himself to the caller by stating his name instead of using the internationally unhelpful word Hello.
"RU Bajwa," he said.
There was a moment's hesitation at the other end of the line, then the caller said, "No. I'm not Bajwa. I want to speak to him."
"RU Bajwa here."
"Here or there, I tell you I am not Bajwa. I am RU Khan."
"Are you RU Khan?"
"Of course, I am RU Khan. Who the hell are you?"
"RU Bajwa"
"Are you deaf? How many times do I have to tell you__ I AM NOT BAJWA !"
This went on till the inevitable __ "SIR??!!"
