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!
 
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)

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

A few of my favourites which don't really need explanation are:

Gizzits.
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.

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 ?
