COMM 08, Festzelt, Kaserne Frauenfeld

Bratwurst mit Pommes Frites und Böllesauce

Being the good citizen that I am, I decided to visit the COMM 08 a military display of communications support and integrated leadership capabilities of the FU BR 41. All this was decorated by assorted tanks, artillery pieces and a whole lot of other fantasic devices. It was great fun looking at all the cool gizmos and seeing the rapid transition from wired switchboards to high-tech quanto crypto communication devices. Attendance was, very suprisingly, a bit low, so we had ample space in the large kitchen tent. The food didn’t look very good, but I chose a bratwurst with french fries and onion sauce. Surprisingly, the food tasted great. I can understand that if looking at the picture on the left, you find it hard to believe, but even the french fries were tasty. Not your 5 star meal, but a pretty decent two star one and at a price which makes sense for CHF 12.50. Unfortunately I’m unsure if a COMM 09 is planned, so this seems like a one time event. Just in case there ever is one, try to remember where you parked your car, as soon as you get out of it, not when you come back to the parking lot. The real highlight of the day, was the One Star General Siegenthaler which shook my hand and thanked me for “die gueti Büez”.
