When listening to today's officers being interviewed etc, a lot of them seem to have 'regional accent'. Only those probably from the Household Brigade and the like still with the 'posh' accent. The other strange accent that has dissapeared is that spoken by commentators in the late 1930', early 1940's. One was giving a commentary of the Battle of Britain and was saying, Oh ! just look at that, he's going to shot that jerry down - oh boy, that'll teach him he's going into the drink, jolly good show, what !.

Received pronunciation! silent Officers nowadays are drawn from all areas of society and, to my mind, seem to have evolved a sort of middle/workings class accent which is peculiar to them - possibly known as a "Sandhurst Accent"? Smile

Pinky,

I've always found that officers in the cavalry with private means and no outside worries were gentlemen on the whole and so long as they were engaged in their horsey persuits etc, never worried you and let the running of the regiment to the WO's & SNCO's.

Freehold with drinks !!

I might add that flip the coin and you see the officer who has no money, he is always skint and cagges off his NCO's. He is always sceaming and taking a short cut. Not really my type of officer especially if we are supposed to rely on him (NOT)!!

That reminds me of a Capt at the School of Signals.He became a Brig after being commandant at Harrogate..Claimed not to smoke,but one dare not leave ciggies unattended when he was about..

Your Rude Boy accent is a variation of my Estuary English I think. You can add The Meadows Supermarket Car Park as another site where this variation of the Queen's English is often heard
