From 'A1' to 'Zulu', the fully revised and updated third edition of Jackspeak is a comprehensive guide to the slang of the Royal Navy.
Discover the humorous and colourful and cryptic slang of the Senior Service, explained in layman's terms. Featuring more than 4,000 alphabetical entries, Jackspeak was compiled by an ex-RM surgeon who spent 24 years in the service. With useful cross-references and examples of common usage throughout, along with excellent illustrations by Tugg, the cartoonist from service newspaper Navy News, it is the essential book for current and ex-Navy personnel and their families, or anyone interested in the modern armed forces.
Osprey is proud to present a revised and updated edition of this classic volume, which is already acknowledged as the standard reference for every Jack, Jenny and Royal joining the Andrew, or for any civvy who wants a real insight into the unique culture of the Navy.
