GOC

GOC = General Officer Commanding - essentially a Platoon Commander but for a Division and he has many more Sergeants to help him run things. And some Ruperts as well, but they're there mostly to carry bags and capture the flak when it all goes wrong.

In spite of their enormous power and influence, they are just as fallible as the rest of us mere mortals, as anyone who witnessed a certain General's spazz attack at Basra airport on Operation Telic will confirm.
