Got it first try, 4.03 is my best. Used to take 3 hour drives every couple weeks so we killed time by reading the number plates in phonetic. Weirdly enough I first learnt it from a wordsearch XD

For everyone complaining about it being "alfa" and not "alpha"--QM is correct. As wikipedia explains "In the official[5] version of the alphabet, the non-English spellings Alfa and Juliett are used. Alfa is spelled with an f as it is in most European languages because the English and French spelling alpha would not be pronounced properly by native speakers of some other languages – who may not know that ph should be pronounced as f. Juliett is spelled with a tt for French speakers, because they may otherwise treat a single final t as silent. In some English versions of the alphabet, one or both of these may have their standard English spelling.[6]" (Which points out that QM has the wrong spelling for Juliett. ;) )

It is just the phonetic alphabet. Not specific to military at all. Its even standard use for people who work in call centres for example. In fact any profession where words need to be spelt out

Even after working in a hospital ER for 2 years where we used these every day... things started to unravel after I got to H. (maybe because in the hospital we used igloo instead of whatever they've got here, it messed up my groove)

Looking over the ones I missed... we also did not use Mike or Oscar because the codes were frequently used for "John and Jane Does" and we wouldn't want someone to get confused and think it was the person's actual name.

Great and easy, re: the comments below, it should probably just be called the Phonetic Alphabet, but people know what 'military alphabet' means. I did it with loads of time to spare, even though it took me a while to add the first 'e' in Quebec!

Not sure it should be called the Phonetic Alphabet as there are a number of different phonetic alphabet. Military alphabet is a bit vague though, as not all militaries around the world use this one (this one is the NATO one, but has subsequently been adopted by a lot of militaries and law enforcement agencies).
