Some MP's are demanding an enquiry into why we did so badly at the world cup. Country is in crisis, our lads getting battered in hot places and they are worried about this nonsense. You couldn't make it up!

Obviously seen as more of a vote winner than fixing Labour's rape of the economy and preventing British lads and lasses getting killed.

Now where's that expense form?

Very funny, but I note from the URL in the bottom right hand corner that it is yet another dig from our Northern Celtic Bretheren. Very Happy

Oops! Sorry! Where would we be without political correctness? (in a democratic society perhaps?)

I suppose it's a bit like the story told to me donkey's years ago.

The Air Ministry sent an official complaint to the Admiralty stating that sailors were referring to airmen as Crabs or Crabfat.

Of course this was not to be tolerated so the Admiralty acted swiftly in sending out the following signal:

"To all HM Ships and Shore Establishments. In future Crabs are to be referred to as the Royal Air Force"

I have some ex-Navy mates and Crabfat is a peculiarly RN expression. Something to do with the colour of said fat and the RAF uniform.

But in the Army, yes; Crabs, Crab Air or White-knuckle Airways.

Thought that was an American term for their blokes Jim? I can remember hearing Popeye say it! Something to do with swabbing the decks maybe?

Just to keep up with the wild fluctuations generated by the subject of the World cup.......When we were in Fort George in Derry, we had to live on HMS Rame Head, a sort of floating workshops, with a RN crewe for a while.
To me "The Andrew" was the name for the Senior Service and one on his own was a "Matelot".
They called us "Gizzits", instead of the usual "Pongos" because every time we saw something interesting on the ship worth cadging we always said "Gizzit"!

The Navy is stiff with it's own words for things Jim, like "The Oggin"
(The Sea), "Gash", (rubbish) and "Uckers", (an incomprehensible game, designed to baffle Pongos.)
"The Andrew" was in common usage way back when I was a kid.

uckers is a game loosley akin to ludo.a great favorate within the AAC for some reason,i dont know if there is anyone who fully understands the rules,every time a situation came up someone would usually pipe up,"well this was the rule at my last unit "so the situation would be overcome,games have been known to last for days.
