Military Acronyms

#1
As an old ex git.... I left 27 years ago. I feel somewhat lost in some of the other forums when people are using modern acronyms. When did BFT become CFT? I was comfortable with BHQ, SLR, SMG, OC, QMS, BAOR, RP and especially QARANC. (She had lovely breasts) Does anyone else feel the same or should I give up trying?

A BFT wasn't a CFT but the BFT, was changed to an APFA. This is not to be confused with a APWT as that would be stupid.

All said in CLAP.

Nope the BFT and the APFA were around at the same time. I don't know when the CFT was brought in, but I'm pretty sure it was more than 27 years ago.

I have to admit my memories are probably mingled slightly, but I sure the BFT replaced the APFA but was changed back again after a few years. As for the CFT, I think the only thing that changed there was how far you went and how long it was going to take depending on Corp/Regt.

BFT came in around 1975/6...

Before this it was the 8/10 mile bash..(plus 6' wall, 12' ditch 30m carry and shoot...)

C.U.N.T been around since the start I think, and is generally used to describe officers, but can be used for other ranks, when they are the said word too.
