Cheers. I posted it on ARRSE with the intention of recording it as a bit of Naval history/work in progress.

There are those on record who believe such things should not in any way be linked or associated with the modern Navy or indeed recruiting, hence the reason for not posting the article itself on Navy Net:

........as you say in the piece it reaches a much bigger audience on ARRSE as can be seen by the response , one comment , I think it was ATG , explaining what the Naval equivalent of 'F**k this for a game of soldiers' when tackling hot acetylene bottles could be ROMFT but not relevant today as T , 'the 12' is no more , we used the version 'Roll on my f*****g time ' in the 3 ships I served on . S'pose ' time' version could be relevant but Jack of today probably has others.

Thanks for posting it Nina, very interesting, I didn't know Stokers could write.

Another good one to express disappointment or a retort to try to stop the brown adrenalin leaking down your leg is ..... '' F***ing shave off ''
