Strange language they use these RM types!

The Royal Marine Commandos have a language all of their own - we had to pick it up as we went along. See how you would do.

Translate the following:

1 - "It's REDDERS today"

2 - "I'm THREADERS with this."

3 - "Pass the OGGIN"

4 - "Fancy a GOFFA"

5 - "It's GEN"

6 - "Spin the DIT"

7 - "Where's the GASH bag?"

8 - "That's HOOFIN' that is"

Answers:

1 - "It's HOT today"

2 - "I'm FED UP with this"

3 - "Pass the WATER"

4 - "Fancy a FIZZY DRINK" (NB: Can also mean a punch, or to be knocked over by a wave while on board ship)

5 - '"It's GENUINE"

6 - "Tell me a GOOD STORY" (preferably an exaggerated one)

7 - "Where's the RUBBISH BIN?"


8 - "That's GREAT/BRILLIANT/EXCELLENT"
