Even so, Rosemary, see my above post about probable variations in the meaning between vessels. So that, while Cyril was of course authoritative as to what he meant by it, and what it meant on the subs in which he served (although, as Dave H says above, some claim to have heard him say it was fried bread), his say-so is not necessarily universally applicable.

(Do you remember me, I wonder? We met more than once: I particularly recall at Fred Woods' marriage to Monica, when I was Fred's best man. I was also gratified that, on one of his cassettes, he acknowledges having learnt one of the songs, Magdalene Green, from me.)

All best wishes
