Getting back to the original subject of recruiting etc, what kind of specialists are the Australian Government looking for ? Is it that it would cost too much to train Australian nationals or no applicants have come forward. Seems strange that they would fast track citizenship that quickly. Mind you, we are as guilty - remember Zola Budd !!

I'll be happy to deal with anything that's in any of the Birmingham area dialects, (except Black Country !), but translating British / Army humour ?

Impossible !

Les, I think a lot of people are aware of at least a few examples of Aussie humour, (you mentioned "Ranga" for someone with red hair, I always thought they were nicknamed "Blue").

What I can't figure out though is why Blighty is called "The Old Dart".

It's probably insulting but tell us anyway !

The “Old Dart” means “the old country”, that is Great Britain (especially England). This is a piece of Aussie slang that can confuse visitors who come from the Old Dart, and have never heard it before...


“dart” is a corruption of “dirt”. So, the Old Dart meant “the Old Dirt” – hence, the home country

Originated in the gold diggings i`m told

Thanks for that Gordon, (not insulting then !).

You've got wondering now, whether the Cornish miners that went over there would've pronounced "dirt" that way.

G'day fellas..howyagoin? Yes Gordon, Old Dart or The Mother Country is England to older Aussies.

Pasties are very popular here, meat and veg in pastry, just like ones in UK. We also have pork pies, better than the England ones, though no pastries for me these days, as Coeliac hit me, gluten free. I hear you can buy gluten free pork pies in UK, I will be looking for some to with the looney juice (cider.) pig

Well fair dinkum cobbers, it has been a bonza yarn, bloody beaut. See youse all down
at the rubbity for a cold one. Strewth it is a warm one, 32C. Time to hit the beach, hopefully no noah's arks in there, plenty of sheilas down there but, getting the skin cancers all over their white pointers. sunny cheers

Thanks for the interest fellas, but veterans of the Boer War and Zulu Wars are prohibited from applying for the Australian Defence Force. Martini Henry rifles were replaced last year with the Steyr.

Knowledge of the current Australian infantry rifle the Steyr SA80 is essential as is the ability to consume large quantities of ice cold lager (not Fosters!) affraid

Ex British Army Catering Corps 'Cooks' welcome..as long they can cook the T Bone steaks and snags (sausages) and the odd prawn on the Barbecue.

Sun screen provided to all ranks. sunny Bikini babes from Bondi Beach also supplied. Very Happy

All applications to: Australian Defence Force HQ, Canberra, Orstralia.

I shall be in the UK from 27 April to 15 May, 2012, so will be conducting interviews at your local watering hole, on behalf of the Chief of the Australian Defence Force, for a small fee. cheers

Anyway happy new year from the Colonials.




Here's hoping they put Recovery Mechanic back on the list, had it snatched from my grasp twice now :-( gutted.

Still living in hope.
