  1. Hey guys :)

    I'm going to be joining the SCOTS DG in the foreseeable future (start date for Pirbirght is 15/07/2012).

    I was wondering if you "lovely bunch" could fill me in on some common Royal Armoured Corps jargon, just so I don't misunderstand people when they use some.

    Thanks in advance for the useful help...but I also expect some trolling so good luck with that too :)

    ACTION! = Wake up we are about to shoot somebody.
    Pussy = (depends on context) 1. Clunge; 2. Soft individual.

    Hope this helps.
