How has the use of acronyms crept into society?
You direct that question to any non caver and expect a strange look.

There is a motor dealer friend who visits today on hos way back from buying cars at "BCA", there is also a caving friend who visits. I hope some day they both here together so I can get the popcorn out.

I don't think it's such a good idea to refer to the Speleological society as the SS,  :wall:

I have never even considered giving an award for "Understatement of the year", but if I had, you would be front runner.

I have to admit that I saw the thread title and what came to mind was a fictional Torquay hotelier goose-stepping across the dining room...

Ha yes, or the Monty Python sketch where the Third Reich are holidaying in Minehead (just over the border but anyway)

How about DSS ? (department of social security for any youths, DWP since 2001) - they had a similar reputation
