Thread Name: Origins: Lean and unwashed tiffy 'Go RA' meaning?
Subject: Origins: Lean and unwashed tiffy 'Go RA' meaning?
In Cyril Tawney's "Lean and Unwashed Tiffy" the last verse is:
"I'm going back to Jago's Mansions
There to end my life on shore.
Join up with them barrack stanchions,
Go R.A. forevermore,
Go R.A—forevermore."
What is meant by "R.A." here?
