Resolved questions
Could you help me with some army jargon?

It‘s about translation,some jargon about daily conversation in the army.

ps:especially for the cadets in the military academy .

If you know that please help me to translate it in a formal way:


the rough meaning is “Excuse me sir!NO.29 company are ready!Number of perople supposed to come are 40!Number of people present are 35!Please give the instruction.”

Thank you!
