Heard a whisper the other day, that on coming under command 3 Cdo Bde, they will be affectionatly know as "the Lifeboats". Something to do with RNLI I guess.
You could say 'yalla' or 'hallas' but 'imshi' leaves them in no doubt - it's rude and to the point lol, be careful though because it is what you say to children and beggars.ugly said:I think the polite version would be Jildi! At least in kiplingese!
Odd that although The_Daddy is a Jacket and TA I learnt most of my kiplingese from the Rifle Depot!
Been in use in the regs for well ever I suppose, ever since we decided that 22 years in Aldershot wasnt a good idea and maybe we could bring justice god and free trade to the uncivilised world.The-Daddy said:I know "Jildi" - its from Hindi and means do it quickly
and the version I was used to was "fukcing move it!"
I left before Telic so never got the chance to learn any arabic slang - my war was closer to home
