FAA Motto

Discussion in 'The Fleet Air Arm' started by Waspie, Mar 9, 2012.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Has the FAA have a motto?
    The RN has;

    Si vis pacem, pare bellum" In English, "if you wish for peace, prepare for war".

    What about us Woo's?
  2. What is the Latin for early chops, make and mends, blue card holders, first in the meal queue,night flying suppers etc etc?????
  3. tea and two, and best drafts.

    In the original Latin I think it is something like

    Soblo Ujaque Imoque.......

  13. I think that's HMS Excellents motto, I was never aware the mob had one just individual ships, establishments etc. Some articles say it's the recruiting dit "The Team Works".

    I think the FAA one is "No, I'm not in the RAF".
  14. A little late perhaps, but it's Invenire Figere Et Percutere 'find fix and strike.
  15. Does 771 follow that motto then, bit of a bummer if your in the poo :tongue:
  16. E pluribus unum ?
  17. yep the pingers will always find you sundodgers with there 195, dunking sonar lol
  18. maximus early chopus
    mimum hard workus
