Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

#1 seems difficult to come up with a proper term, although it's a common enough scene.  Way/road/route+explanation/clarification would seem to be the literal translation.  Is the officier explaining a plan of attack?  issuing orders?

Good eye, Koen!  Aren't/were'n't MPs (military police) in charge of traffic/convoy guidance in WWII for the US?  I saw it in a movie, I think!
