Dolmetscher, Scaley (short for Scaleyback), is the name given to Royal Signals personnel. It goes back to WW2 when the Radio Ops carried their batteries in their backpacks and the acid was known to leak.

Thanks for that, Shelldrake. I used to be the proud owner of a No. 18 set. Cost me about fifteen bob in 1952. I also had the hand-held set, but can't recall the number, now. Might have been 38 set.

Well I never joined the army to fight. Exotic hot places, skiing in the winter, big boobed women, nice sergeant majors tucking you in and bringing tea in the morning.

It was all in the recruitment advertisments. LIARS!

Talking of exotic places, I originally applied to join the Royal Navy, when I went to the Recruiting Office the first question I was asked was, "Can you swim?", I replied, "Why, haven't you got any ******* Boats". They pointed me in the direction of the Army Recruiting Office. Shocked Shocked

Well you learn something new every day, whilst I always called them scaleybacks I never knew where the term originsted.

Well....not totally Cool some of you got posted to "exotic hot places" (Cyprus, AF, etc), big boobed women (I never met a squaddie who hadn't hooked up with at least one buxom fraulein....even if she rented by the hour!). As for the nice Sergeant Major tucking you in....didn't at least a couple of them, somewhere, sometime, uhm....well....never mind!!

Isn't there different "types" of Gaelic? Welsh vs Irish vs Scots vs Brittany. Perhaps that's it....

It saddened me to see how nasty Spike became in old age, Altzheimers I suppose.

I looked up his gravestone on the web, I suppose that bit of Gaelic must be the epitaph.

Irish father, English mother, born in India grew up in Lewisham. Funny how he suddenly decided he was Irish.

Bit like Londoners Jim Davidson & Rod Stewart, Scottish when it suits them. Suspect

You are correct there are different versions of Gaelic, the Irish one is called Erse.

Perhaps he was annoyed that he served his country in the war, was badly mentally scarred because of it and they refused to accept that he was a British citizen or something. I may be wrong but he decided on being Irish after that?

Davidson (spit) is just the same as Cilla Black and Tarbuck. Good old scousers when it suits them but wouldn't be caught within a mile of Liverpool these days.

Fancy someone from Birmingham criticising the way Scousers speak! Razz
