I was going to ask whether we can join numbers used for numbering such as:

flood torpedo tubes one and two
DuS wa' cha' je tIbuy'choHmoH

However, I think this must be pretty straightforward, since it's just {wa'}
and {cha'} being placed after the noun instead of being placed before it.

So I'm just writing this as a separate thread for the purpose of archiving
this matter, thus avoiding to be asking about it again in the future.
