oil? nah, as my Grandfather said "us Yanks are overpaid, oversexed and overpaid" - that goes double for the Marines. if you're wife or gf is hot, we'll take her.
Jarhead send details of address etc and she's on the next plane, Kiwi (ex)surfie chick so you may have probs understanding her but perseverence pays off I've been married to her for 13 years (You get less for murder) and can now have a conversation without having to ask for sub titles :lol: .
Welcome aboard, just think if your descendents hadn't moved to the states you could have been a proper Marine, never mind at least you tried 8O .

Welcome Jarhead.
I'm a nurse, Australian, live in UK and got my tattoo in Chorley, so you should understand the lingo just fine :) Just go with the flow and give as much as you get. It's a good bunch here.

Nearly missed this one, have we discussed the tatto Pinta???????

Well said dondon, and you are perfeckly correct about the leather collar jar head but it was more than that, it saves u from slit throats during the night. slightly
 
Welcome Jarhead. I'm originally from your granny's neck of the woods and now reside in London. Personally only an academic involvement in things military though many family connections and 'personal relationships' (moving swiftly on...)

I'm often found in Lil's and as I'm a francophile have obviously been referred to several times as a 'cheese eating surrender monkey'. As I see it lots of people here feel a natural insecurity regarding the superior climate, countryside, cuisine and culture of our nearest neighbours. (Someone will make a joke about the Welsh now :roll: ). The reason I stayed is I think that the humour here is similar to that of people from the north of England - born in adversity forged in the fires of whatever ....

If you pop into Lil's the first question will be 'are you a Walt?' the 2nd 'got any naked pics?' I replied 'bugger off' to both questions being (vaguely still recognisable as) female.

I'm in a foreign land within my own country here re lingo but they have been relatively gently with me ;) - strongly suspect this will not be the case for you - bienvenue mate

Welcome onboard Jarhead! Most people over here are more knowledgeable about Chorley Cakes than the place itself.

Prefer ECCLES CAKES to CHORLEY.

Not forgetting Rivington Pike a nice fell race for them there athletic types. Done many years ago poor ex wifey got stuck in the bog but the race had to go on you have to think of the club silent breakfasts for a few days later.

Actually they met before Pearl Harbor day; he was an aircraft mechanic hired in the U.S. to help you guys with ground maintenance during the Battle of Britain and was in England from 1940 to 1946.

haha, also, he got drafted while he was over there, so they said to him: "Ok, May, you can either go back to the U.S. on a ship, go to boot camp, then come back to England, or you can go to boot camp here in England". he chose the England route.
