Less than flattering Regimental Nicknames

#1
Have all current (and former) Army Regiments and Corps had 'Less than Flattering nicknames?

And if so what are the meanings behind them??

The ones I'm familiar with are;

RMP - Monkeys

RAOC- Blanket Stackers/Rag and Oil Company

ACC - Slop Jockeys/Army Cement Company

RCT - Trogs/Rickshaws,Cabs and Taxis

Pioneer Corps - Chunkys


Any more?

The Lincolnshire Regiment used to be called 'Yellow Bellies'. Apparently they wore yellow waistcoats back in the mists of time.
