Our Names....

Because of my surname which was written inside my cap so I knew where to put it when they ordered "On Cap".

Oh how I laughed when someone wrote feet in my shoes or boots.

Jambosun - self explanatory but also am a Heart of Midlothian Fan who are known as Jam Tarts (Rhyming slang and they play in maroon which could be considered to be jam coloured) That has been shortened so that Hearts fans are known as Jambos therefore cleverly(?) combining the RN and my beloved football team.

'Kin Hell that was a boring explanation!!

Nutty Bag. Nutty is name given to chocolate, nuts etc. Therefore a nutty bag is the item in which this is carried used by nods as a means of keeping going doing training.

I chose mine because of the white between the gold lace of the old S&S branch (worn long before I enlisted I hasten to add !! :razz: )
White Mice (or White Mafia as seems to be the case in today's modern Navy) was a term for us Blue carders. And 'Jackdusty' and 'Dusty Jack' had already been claimed.

Met someone who was exRN through a lonely hearts ad - nothing doing as he was married - to tease me he suggested I ask someone who also claimed to be RN what the golden rivet was. Being a northern lass this rather silly concept appealed to me - also means that new people in Lil's think I'm a bloke at first which is quite a laugh. I can't help thinking that in spite of all the banter the RN must be a rather straight laced world as I'm often asked if I know what it really means - I try to remember to say "no please explain..." :wink:
