The essential dictionary of modern British naval slang, covering the Navy, the Royal Marines and the Fleet Air Arm An indispensable resource for servicemen and women, exservicemen, their families, or anyone with an interest in or connection to the Royal Navy Now available in an expanded and revised third edition.

Jackspeak is a comprehensive reference guide to the humorous and colourful slang of the Senior Service, explaining in layman's terms the otherwise cryptic everyday language of the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines and the Fleet Air Arm. Featuring more than 4,000 alphabetical entries, it 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. Conway 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.
