What are you on? / Back in the Day and annoying army phrases !

#1
Back in the day everybody was using ' What are you on ?' when bumping into mates in the cook house, NAAFI, or down town etc. to ask what job they have or what they were doing. At the time it was that frequent it started to annoy people but was in constant use and then used as banter to wind people up. Is this still used today?

It got me thinkingWhat other annoying phases irritate(d you when you were serving.

I have started off with 'back in the day' thats pissing me off now every bodies started using that.....

"Can't means won't. Won't means gaol!"
Yes I remember that (although the word was jail for us). normally as I was on my hands and knees struggling up the hills of Pirbright for 10th time.

You trained in the US then?
Ive never heard it called gaol before (Ive read it) we have always said can't mean won't and won't mean jail, when I say we I mean the instructor who stood at the top of the hill with his hand on his hips waiting for me to stagger past.

Some shouty bloke standing behind and saying "amihurtingyouimustbecoziamstandingonyourfuckinhair" likewise the same chap saying "nexttimeyoushavestandclosertothefuckingrazor" and the classic "thatfuckingstoneisnotmovingpaintitwhite" and who can forget "holdthatshellcasingoveryourheaduntilicomeback"
Oh how we laughed.

1. I'll ram this pacing stick up your nose and climb into your brain......... Drill instructor Basic training.

2. pass me that scmindedoof........... Made up German word.

3. Spadoofa and complete Spadoofa ......... depending on how bad one fucked up.

4. "Dont be shy, give it a try" was popular in Gulf one with reference for Arab women to remove their face veils.

BTW ...... Anybody remember playing "roll the double dice" in RSM's romper room? .... to see how many extras one would receive. :)
