Sorry that you didn't want to believe me or BFTV.
I rarely believe anything without a source, to be clear.
And for the fact of the matter, the moment you posted, I took that post to those in the know with tanks and reported it to them as "Britain positioned 4th, guy on a forum I help run let me know third hand, waiting to get a source for confirmation." So don't go on the whole me just passing you over bit.
Then when a separate second hand source turned up, that took precedence, as it was an actual source containing specific details from somewhere that has contained accurate data in previous years.
Now, when a second source emerges from a 1st hand perspective from the QRH, that takes precedence.
It's not about ego, 'wanting' or who is 'right'. It's about basic fact checking when hearing something, and updating the current knowledge based on the information available.
These days, especially in defence reporting, such a thing is not only advised, but I find to be mandatory.
