After I had just commissioned one of the first VHF police radio systems 
in the UK, the operators were told to use "proper radio procedure" - 
anyone having read the ascent of Rumdoodle will appreciate that comment..

Anyway, whilst clearing up the tools and casually listening to traffic I 
heard the following:

Observing a car being driven at speed from a railway station car park, 
the bobby called into the control room, requesting all officers to be on 
the lookout for a car registration TBJ 145 which he believed to be stolen.

The inspector jumped to the desk and grabbed the microphone and tore a 
strip off the bobby for not using phonetics.

The poor bobby replied in a rather shaky voice.. erm sorry .. thats 
Tango Bango Jango....
