I'm sure this has been done before but I can't be arsed to to search forever / revive a dead thread:

any examples of funny stuff from your military careers / reading?

a few to start you off


The Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) was known as 'Rob All My Comrades' (woundeds' watches tended to go missing)

Rum was issued in stone jars marked 'SRD' ( for Special / Service (?) Rations Department) but known as 'Seldom Reaches Destination' (many being 'broken' on the way to the front-line)

Cold War

'Tea NATO' was white with 2 sugars

'Tea Julie Andrews' was white with no sugar (ie none / nun)

'Tea/Coffee Whoppi Goldberg' was black no sugar (see above)*

* last one may be accopryphal / made up - certainly I never heard it but have read it on the www

Must be more - I could do with cheering up
