To get a code - show you have some knowledge!

 

First 10 correct posts with the correct answers to the questions below get a code.

 

1.  What does SCRAN stand for?

2.  What is an ord?

3.  Name the ship associated with five inch friday?

4.  How many years of undetected crime does a 3 badgeman have?

edit - a hint if you look at my profile picture and signature you'll know where these come from....

edit 2 - 2nd hint - have a look through these forums you'll find some of the answers and a link that gives many more

edit 3 - there are some correct (enough) answers to have received codes, and few that aren't (copy paste doesn't always get you a pass)

edit 4 - there are still quite a few of the codes available, those that have got it correct check your forum inbox for a pm

 

Edit 23/01/2015 - well it's time to close this off.

Those that won codes have had them PM'd to them (check your inboxes).

 

Answers:

1.  What does SCRAN stand for?

Stuff Cooked by the Royal Australian Navy (First word changed to suit PG 13+ nature of these forums)

(I accepted the Sultana's etc as that is the RN origin of the abbreviation)

2.  What is an ord?

an ord is an Ordinary Seaman

3.  Name the ship associated with five inch friday?

HMAS Anzac

4.  How many years of undetected crime does a 3 badgeman have?

at least 12.  Each badge was collected for 4 years of good conduct (and could be removed if you had to face the table).  These days it's just a badge for every 4 years of service.  (and yes I had 3)

5.  Which ship sank the German light cruiser SMS Emden?

HMAS Sydney

6.  What is a goffa?

Soft drink

7.  Finish this saying "sweepers, sweepers man your brooms, those for'ad sweep aft, those aft sweep for'ad, those in the ______ passageways get out of the way!"

"cross" passageways (those going port/stbd rather than fwd/aft).  

(I accepted the "ladder bays and" answer after seeing it in a google search from the USN/USMC)

8.  What is a monkeys fist?

type of knot used, normally used to add weight to a heaving line

9.  If you were on a "makers" where would you be?

half day off - make and mend - time to fix your rigs, get a haircut etc.

10.  Who will get more rep - Chappo or KaZanova?

KaZanova won that one (I would of accepted either)

 

Thread locked.

2nd Code

 

Which famous Battleship weighing in at 50,000 tons is the second biggest Battleship class after the Japanese Yamato class (72k tons) Battleship of WW2.

 

Careful, Wiki will lie because it will have most recent upgrades included.

CGC you are correct.  The Bismark class was the second largest BB of WW2, the US Iowa class coming in at 47k tons though with post war upgrades she got much larger.  Well done!

Question 4 for a Code

 

What ship was the first turreted* warship?

 

You are going to have to dig way back for this one.

 

Turreted* - does not refer to all big gun classes however.
