Being a driver of big green lorries I have the habit of saying 'clear left or right' when looking out for someone, say again and alles uber die platz even though thats wholly incorrect.

Suppose he means "all over the place"?

I say "as you were", usually to myself when I cock up. Say again of course. Nichts Verstehen (sp?), Ich weis es nicht (sp?)

I just can't understand why people look at me in a daft way when I do it? Shocked

Cornflakes still get called "Soggies"- (the cooks used to hot milk on them in the winter).

Underpants still get called "Shreddies"

Like Teabag, I still use "As you were".

Bits of radio procedure still crop up but that is partly due to it's usage when I was on the Ambulance Service.

Trouble is, Gordon, we can't, (don't want to), let go !

I still use all of the above, but now that I am of a certain age (people offer me their seat on public transport, not in this country, I hasten to add), I also say "I don't bloody believe it!!" No No

If you were driving a 60 ton Chieftan around the German Countryside would you admit to being lost? Not good for your credibility! Embarassed

Tank Commanders were never lost in QOH. When challenged they allways said "I was following a contour line".

Yeah right, one that led straight into Schwindebeck !

I hadn't realised how many army expressions I still use.

One of the most descriptive I've ever heard is "Kit Check", to describe the result of someone throwing up.

To the puzzlement of most civilians, I still say

"Stand Slack",
"Out of Action"
and that old favourite-"Buckshee".

Hmmmm....it's been many years since I hung around you lot, and learned how to speak the sort of English you all insisted was "English" so let's see if I can figure this sentence out....

"I was really really drunk last night, shit-faced, and woke up this morning with a girl so ugly she needed two bags over her head..." the only thing I can't figure out is what Gopping means...do I even want to??? affraid

Ich bin forlorn....

Now, not sure of the real spelling of "forlorn" auf Deutsch (it could be verloern (an umlaut over the 'o') as I think of it) but I find it interesting the similarity between it and the English word "forlorn" also meaning a bit lost, but emotionally lost....I found a lot of German words were very close to English or at least Old English but then the two languages do share the same roots....

And just how in hell do you "lose" 60 tonnes of vehicle????

(patting down one's pockets)...I know I had it here a second ago....! tongue

You are on the right track Stephen !

File "Gopping" (a word that emerged in the late 70's),
under "Generally disgusting".

Most of the words that describe a remarkably ugly woman could all fit under the title "A five pinter".

We must keep these things simple if we can.

Stephen, a "Double bagger" means "She was so ugly that you needed two bags, one to put over her head and one to put over your head in case the one over her head fell off". pale affraid


How about a "Six coiler" - I'll leave that one for Brum to explain!! Laughing Laughing Laughing
