Brevity Codes
 
They seem to have fallen out of favour these days. Has anyone got a list of the old (SH) Brevity Codes. For starters I remember "101" being "epic, f*cking epic"

I've got a copy of the "Falcon" codes, reputedly an adaption of the Dolphin code.

Falcon 145: "With all due regard to your professional status, you f*cked it up, c*nt".

and such lines as: "Speed up the fan, the sh*ts coming down in lumps"

Can scan and email on request. Bit too blue to post direct here.

I recall two of the Dolphin codes as being along the lines of:-

"Your seniority prevents me from commenting, but you know what I'm thinking, don't you Sir."

"Apart from moving some water around, what are we achieving?"


Would like to hear some more.

Fighter Pilot University :: Falcon Codes

Coarse and lacking humour. I prefer the ones I half remember

PFMG 13th Feb 2014 19:17

I don't disagree but perhaps that's because the codes to which you refered to previously were Dolphins.

Submariners always had more class - try

Dolphin code

The Falcon codes originated in Vietnam days if I remember correctly. It was in vogue at Wildenrath in the heyday. I'll post up if I can find my copy.

:hmm: I never thought this forum would ever be frequented by people who use foul language, whether abbreviated or accompanied by asterisks, or whatever. That sort of conduct is best used in the 'brown jobs' forum, where the lower echelons of military life seem to live.:rolleyes:

MOSTAFA 13th Feb 2014 20:31

Best **ck off then.

oxenos 13th Feb 2014 21:20

Thanks for the Dolphin code post, PFMG

However, "22. Submarines never cheat and rarely lie." must surely be a misprint.

Surplus 14th Feb 2014 03:14

Just replace 'never' with 'always' and 'rarely' with 'usually' and it is correct.

LOL, are you trying to say that pilots are a higher breed ?

That's funny, some of the best profanities I have heard came from
RAAF Officers / Pilots.

Maybe it was because they were in a "brown job" Officer / SNCO mess ;)

Personally I respect anybody's right to object to foul and abusive language.

No need to be a cnut about it though.

Do you mean this bloke?

I will always remember this Falcon Code from our ship, but I can't remember the number. I think it was 335. We were an ASW ship, with the DESRON staff embarked. (Destroyer Squadron, usually charged with coordinating ASW for the whole battlegroup).

Falcon 335:
"You may not like the forkin' DESRON, but the DESRON likes forkin' you." (Sub for the actual term, of course).

We used it with some frequency, usually when our ship for fuelling was changed to some other ship many miles away by the DESRON ... :mad:
