    There are lots of jobs with nicknames only known by the people who are in such jobs. The Army/Armed forces are amongst them.
    There are lots of words/phrases, some are obvious w.n.k.r for instance:thumb:
    I will list just three words for perusal. if you are in the know please dont spoil it for others, but feel free to add new words. if you think you know an answer please list it.

    Word 1......Dhobi Dust.
    ........2.......Crap Hat.
    ........3.......Cosy Bum.

    Ah, babies' heads. Good solid Lumpie.

    I knew them as Steamer Bats.

    I was always content to be a fat remf...

    Just plain crab fat, surely; no indefinite article required. I was a fat crab, but it's not the same thing.

    Hairy Marys.

    Brothel Creepers were part of one's mufti.

    Sippers and Gulpers.
