    Can remember one from the Falklands whilst on the Penelope. Every day we were issued meat pies at lunchtime at our action station and these soon became affectionaly known as BAMPS = Bomb Alley Meat Pies.

    It stood for Transport Without Ambulance Treatment,usually for friday night drama queens who cant hold their beer.
    Summed them up about right.

    The Yanks have Strategic Weapons Facility Atlantic and Pacific - SWFLANT and SWFPAC
    RNAD Coulport was going to be named
    Strategic Weapons Facility UK or SWFUK - this was hastily changed to UKSWF

    SLUT - Ship Launched Underwater Target
    TART - Towed Acoustic Recoverable Transponder

    Any pingers online? I might have these a bit wrong but I can still remember a pipe being made on board Minerva off Andros Island in 1975 to the effect that SLUT had been screwed by TART during an unplanned snarl up.

    Qintetic or whatever it now is on the top of Portsdown Hill, which was ASWE for many years, was originally to be called the Admiralty Radar and Signals Establishment .. I believe someone saw the light before the nameboard was painted up.

    Yes the very same. Should you ever ask a question of DML you get DML in response!
