Navel expressions & words

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. Does the RN still use Jack speak, the finest of all languages?
    I'll start with a few and hope more will follow:

    Party As in girlfriend
    Splitarse Jenny wren
    Brown Hatter Homosexual
    Brown hatters scrampling net String vest
    Brown hatters overalls Pyjamas
    Babies heads Steak & Kidney puddings
    Crabby Dirty
    Tiddly Smart
    Shit on a raft Braised kidneys on toast
  2. Sickbay Shackle A safety Pin
    Homewardbounder Crappy Suturing(usually by an MO!)
    Silver serpent Rigid Sigmoidoscopy
    Doris Naval Nurse

    p.s. Slim its NAVAL not Navel.Navel refers to your Bellybutton! :lol: :lol: :lol:
  3. Pusher- as in pram pusher Wife/Girlfriend
    Wingnut- twatt with big ears

    I had it for breakfast on HMS Carron, I was a crown killick at the time, so sometime around 1990/91. The chef was an ex-regular who was in his early 40s at the time and had been taught this essential recipe in the Mob. Bloody luvverly it was too!
  7. Jack speak was all well and good and has crept into mainstream language. But as an academic I like to see how many word I can comeup with to describe the penis or vagina (he he he, I said vagina)....
    The long winter nights just fly by.
    Some personal favourites
    Spurt Reynolds
    Captain Picard
    Spasm chasm
    Stench trench (as in, I want to shove my bowel trowel up your stench trench)
  8. Wots a 'crown killick' then :?
  9. Someone appointed by Royal Decree? :roll:

    From memory (failing) someone who was rated up not having passed the promotion exam. One of the Sparkers on the Amethest (yantz incident) was rated POTel under that scheme, his name totally escapes me, and it was before my time, but I remember the dit from somewhere
  11. Do they still have fleet AB's?

    Only in the 100 metres :lol:
  13. A few of my favourites which don't really need explanation are:

    Matlots with Tits.
    Grand Slam.
    I hear what you're saying.
    Sun Dodger.
    Jews Marchpast.

    Don't think it's as well used as it once was though.

    Navel expression: belly button

    Naval expression: Muppet
  15. Crown Killick, someone who had completed their career course but not yet promoted i.e. didnt have the required points.
  16. Aha - the mists of bafflement disperse now....

    Someone who has completed his Petty Officer Professional Course (as was) - yes ?

    I must admit, I don't recall that expression when I passed mine, I recall requesting for and being granted Scale 'A' pay - must be a modern term perhaps ?

    Killick passed professionally for PO, but not yet rated...

    ... in my case, best time of my life as a JR.
