"Scalleys" . . . Liverpool slang for Scallywags.

"Scallywags" . . . little buggers that run around causing general mayhem

"Scaleys" . . . a nickname given to members of the Royal Signals, who run around . . . aaah ! Embarassed

Welcome aboard Maverick. Despite what one or two say about 7 Sigs, it was a good Regiment at least when I served there in the 1960's. Remember the REME Tels arriving once a year for the Tels Inspection. Our Foreman used to age in one week and it never wore off.

good luck teabag, I have to have this done frequently, found some polips first time. better sooner than later though. wait till you take the laxative premed !!!!!. And I have always thought that while this an undignified process, its nothing compared to the indiganties that our good ladies have to go through much more often.
