A commanding officer (CO) died during an exercise in Wallaby, Australia.

He was on sitting on top of a tank. He told the tank driver to charge.

The tank driver did as he was ordered.

The CO got hit hard by a chunky tree branch which the tank drove under.

He died from the hit.

This begs the question, why didn’t he jump off the tank before the tree branch hit him?

Oh he did make the jump alright.

He just jumped to another world to meet his Maker.

To Las Montanas: Yes. It really happened according to someone who went to Wallaby for some military exercise. Both tragic and comical.

I've heard a very similar story and it happened in Singapore. Or Australia.
