Learning from the past
Still in a military frame of mind... The big lessons that we must learn are those from the mistakes of the past and we must then strive to not repeat them. It is not just the big important stuff we can learn from the past either. The military have out of necessity developed techniques for teaching that work even for the strong of arm and thick of head. It works because has to or the cannon fodder would not last long enough to make a difference. Graham GW0HUS sent me a link to some lessons from the US military that every aspiring and quite a few established CW operators should watch and take note of. They have an amusingly dated feel but the information is as relevant today as it ever was.
