"A minor comedy of officialism was enacted with the Pup. Those in high places were grieved to observe this name 'Pup'; they regarded it as undignified, frivolous, slangy, unofficial and Heaven knows what else. So they found time, during the fury and trouble of war, to pen an order which called upon all to note that the Sopwith Pup was not the Sopwith Pup but the Sopwith Scout Mark Something-or-Other. Everybody read the order and marvelled, and then referred to the machine as the Sopwith Pup."
