I think the full phrase was "Doolaly Tap" Mr S, summat ter do with our redcoats in India,going daft because of the heat.
oops sorry didn't click on yer link.
Another one was the much used "Cushty" by Dell Boy,meaning good or something good, old Indian Army chap I knew in me local used to say Cushty Vardy,seems like quite a few strange phrases originated in the days of our empire.
