I am however aware of what a falling plate is in the literal sense, I was not aware of the slag usage.
I assume you mean slang usage, but as GDav points out the term is used for any unit that has taken a beating. I think the RGJ were also called this during the NI troubles around the late 70s, due to losses incurred.
Yes indeed I did, a lunchtime typo I'm afraid.
Gdav; I'm not entirely sure how we got at odds in the first place, but ok treat my questions as you see fit.
I'm not at odds with anyone. Nor do I need permission on how to treat questions. My mammy lets me make my own decisions these days.
Alright boyos, there's only one way to settle this one....outside, in the car park, the pair of ye!!
