Is this just bullsh!t?

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. My girlfriend just got told by a guy she knows that he "just got a call from the RN" and that he's applying for "national grid". Nothing else.

    She won't ask him what it is for fear of looking like an idiot. I don't have the same fears.

    So. Is it a "jackspeak" term?
    Is it something I've missed on the forum?
    Maybe even RFA?

    Someone please clarify whether he's just BSing her.

    Cheers, lads.
  2. This may be connected with a recent announcement by Gordon Brown, that all RN vessels and STUFT will in future be connected to the national grid 24/7!
  3. STUFT? Dear lord Thingy? How old are you?

    ......As old as me..I knew what he was talking about :oops:

    Tim, "National Grid" is naval slang meaning someones girlfriend is back on the market and fair game for a good seeing to due to her chap being away or soon to be away. Hence the saying "she's back on the national grid"

    Hope this helps.
  5. Well that is shocking, now who would do such a thing! 8O :D
  6. Sigh. Nevermind. My girlfriend failed on this.

    He's applied for a job at the national grid and is also applying to the navy.
  7. :roll: Hope your PARTY is not on the GRID :oops: :oops: if you ever reach the dizzy heights of a Nozzer :roll: Tim but Dim
  8. Rosie, are you telling me STUFT is no more??!! o_O

    You'll be claiming there's no NCS, ROs or Stokers next! :biggrin: :oops:
  9. Ah, it was all your GFs fault that you started another crap thread.
    Well up to your usual standard of dribbling mongness Tim.
  10. Well I knew what you meant Steve, and I'd be surprised to learn that STUFT is no more. I mean, we need STUFT more than ever now with the state of the current fleet..... :lol:
  11. Are they called some unholy americanism or something now then?
