it comes from the back of my mind, so no direct references. Military
services didn't liked me, too ;). Maybe I know the term from some
fellows who are grown up in GDR. I will try to determine this. The
term is not in my active vocabulary. If one trusts google, 'sturmbahn'
seems to be quite common in military lingo.
