New Royal Marine - squab?

Discussion in 'ARRSEpedia' started by steveb1000, Aug 28, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone help me with the nickname for a new Royal Marine?

    Is it 'squab' or something similar?

    Cheers in advance if you can help.
     
  2. Useless c#nts?
     
  3. Nod when they are in training, tho obviously we don't use that phrase cos it isnt PC....and then sprog for anyone new at anything
     
  4. When I did my exchange tour it was "nod" or "noddy."
     
  5. I saw the term Sprog on the MOD website is said to be a term for a new navy guy. Does that ring any bells?

    Cheers
     
  6. Nod is the norm for a RM recruit.
