RoyH (Burl) Jollopy Tea. What is It? [in song: Any Complaints] (13) RE: Jollopy Tea. What is It? 07 Oct 12

In my early days in the army I and my fellow recruits were told that our tea would be doctored by adding 'bromide' in order to reduce our sex drive, thus helping us concentrate more fully on learning to be a soldier. This was known as 'jollopy' tea, and I can't tell you whether it was effective or not. We were kept far too busy to think about sex or anything else outside of army matters. It may just have been army folklore perhaps, but that's what it meant. As we progressed into our army careers of course sex reared it's beautiful head quite often due to Mother Nature. Or jollop-free tea! RouH.
