I know its a p-47 but what the word "jug or jag" means or symbolizes.



Only in the spirit of attack, born in a brave heart, will bring success to any fighter aircraft, no matter how highly developed it may be.

Some say that he P-47's nickname, the Jug, is a comment related to its pug nosed appearance.

Others say it is becuase the fusilage looks like a "milk Jug".

The British believed it to be an abbreviation for the word Juggernaut.

I believe "jug" is short for "juggernaut", and it also describes the physical characteristics of the ac.

Yeah, Jug has like quadrouple meanings for the P47.

By Jag I assume you mean Jager which is German for fighter.

The nickname "Jug" came originally from US pilots who thought the P-47 looked like a Jug of milk. The Brits called the P-47 the Juggernaut, but "Jug" was already given by the US pilots flying them. Now JAG has nothing to do with the P-47, JAG is the Judge Advocate General, a legal division of the US Military. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The only references I have found to it's origin by an actual P-47 pilot was in P-47 Pilot ~ the Fighter Bomber Boys where the author said they used the term to describe the new bubble top because it looked like a milk jug compared to the razorback.

Opinions differ. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

Where did the term Tommy come from to describe an English Infantry Soldier? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif

I'm going by memory here but I think it comes from a document used by the British army in the early 19th century to show new recruits how to fill in their recruitment forms. I think the 'sample' name 'Thomas Atkins' was used in this, and this was shortened to Tommy. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

True but the expression "NICE JUGS!!!" has other connotations and will more than likely get you a slap if said to a female, no matter how drunk you are... esp in this part of the world http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
