Totally different tack. I'm (now) 5-11-.75, then I was an even 6' at 180 pounds and I'm introduced to my new "#2" for the bush in 1961. The man was huge, like E-NOR-MUS big. He towered over me and probably had at least 100 pounds on me even in combat equipment.
Took me close to a couple of weeks before I could 'understand' his Southern Drawl. To communicate I actually had to look at him and watch his lips. In the 'bush'? A huge hand on my shoulder pushing me down.
Fellow had the hearing of a barn owl. He could hear a mouse move. I had the special equipment, he had my back.
Someone later told me we were called 'Mutt and Jeff.' You may have to be 'old' to understand that one.
