I think this is a very interesting question about a BrE expression mainly confined to military usage which has gained traction on a more popular basis in India. OP appears to be at a loss after having checked with Google and asked around.

Is putting the question on hold the best way to deal with it?

I'm probably the only one who voted to leave it open, and that's probably because I'm an Indian myself, and I understood what OP was thinking. The question does not include research much, but I must say that it's not easy for such an OP to find the right sense from google results.

Your answer is neat, and I don't think it'll need any additional answers. Regardless, I've voted to reopen.

Now that ELU has an answer to it, it's the top google result for others to see.
