Andrew

Nickname for the Fish Heads of the Royal Navy. This “nickname” was given by the Royal Navy to the Royal Navy to make themselves sound a lot more loved and admired than they actually are. Anybody else - both Military and Civilian alike will immediately hit upon the phrase “Rum, Sodomy and the lash” with the emphasis on the second bit. It's a Bit like the BBC giving itself the nickname “Auntie” rather than their true nickname “The Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation”.

Prince Andrew

Also the name of the Queen's third child. Served in the above organisation between 1979 - 2001.

After earning his green beret from The Booties he decided to become a Helicopter Pilot instead. Joined 820 Naval Air Squadron in 1982, just in time for the big sail south. This was despite the protests of the government and at the Queen's insistence. During the said War, the young Prince flew various missions as a Sea King co-pilot. This included acting as an Exocet missile decoy, which was meant to be a secret, till the Prince let slip to the press. Oops!

Married to the ginger duchess Fergy for a while, till she was caught messing around with some Yank. He has since gone out with various Ladies giving him the nickname 'Randy Andy'.

Has somewhat blotted his copybook recently by insisting on extremely expensive methods of getting about the country for his own entertainment but in a Tony Blair like way making someone else pay (i.e. the UK taxpayer).
