    Love the name of that one Hans, fits the fly very well.

    Here children of servicemen are known as "scaley Brats". Married service personnel are on a scale for the standard of housing etc. that they are provided with. They are known as "Scaleies". Hence scaley bratt. Maybe another fly?

    Cheers,
