Question about paying compliments

Very many moons ago (like 1983) a colleague (cpl) and I (J/T) pitched up in the Eng mini to reset Boulmer’s TACAN.

The site was also used as visiting cadet accommodation.

They were leaving as we drove in and we got very smartly saluted.

As I was the passenger, I was instantly promoted to honorary AVM for the day. :rofl:
