All three services are fond of acronyms. There must be many that get a bit distorted, or the lads invent some of their own. I had to search on line to find out what STAB stands for just never seen it B.A. We used to refer to my own mob as the Royal Air Farce, and an there was something called tactical deployment and policy unit, or TDAPU I believe, that was referred to by those that had to attend as, Thinly Disguised As a Piss Up. Both these are pretty tame but there must be a few gems out there ?
