On this occasion, the Acronym you have spotted is actually the User Name of a regular poster on this forum.

It struck me that you might like to see examples of Acronyms which are in use in the Navy. Quite a few of them are mentioned in Rick Jolly's book, Jackspeak. Rick's book is really a lexicon of the words which comprise the slang of the Royal Navy, hence Jackspeak.

The late Dr Jolly served as a Medical Officer for some 25 years, most notably in the Falklands.

I think that you might find Jackspeak very interesting; the entry for the word 'Bish' will be of particular interest to you.

Judging by their moniker, fit looks like Catan-man should also be looking up "cutlass" - and making sure that they don't leave Jackspeak lying around where their mum could read it!:eek:

In the last month, three different people have gotten me that book. ...all without prompting

(Including my dear old mother!)
 
Idea for @catan-man - Return your Mother's copy to enable her to decode your correspondences.

Before 'Jackspeak' was published my own mother (RIP bless her) often found our terminology strange and confusing. I can still hear her now as she once puzzled over one particular term In all innocence;

"Heads?" she inquired before adding "Mmmm, I'd have thought that 'Tails' would have been more appropriate..."'
