This alphabet started in the military, but is now used throughout the English speaking world by pilots and tele-operators to work out which letter is being said when you are talking. For example if I wanted to say, ADPTE, which would be much
clearer than I could say Alpha, Delta, Papa, Tango, Echo

  1. Alpha
  2. Bravo
  3. Charlie
  4. Delta
  5. Echo
  6. Foxtrot
  7. Golf
  8. Hotel
  9. India
  10. Juliet
  11. Kilo
  12. Lima
  13. Mike
  14. November
  15. Oscar
  16. Papa
  17. Quebec
  18. Romeo
  19. Sierra
  20. Tango
  21. Uniform
  22. Victor
  23. Whiskey
  24. X-ray

The main use for this is when spelling names or codes. Try this with a number of
unusual names and see if your partner can guess.
