* Abbreviations of liv, tyr, and nor should be avoided. If an order is interpreted as ambiguous, then the order will fail. For example, F Nth-Nor could mean fleet North Sea to Norway, or fleet North Sea to Norwegian Sea. Even if one set of orders seems to make more sense, the order is ambiguous, and will fail due to two possible interpretations, both of which could be intended.
