Why are raf called crab fats?
The reason the RAF are called crab fats by the Royal Navy goes back a few years and lies in the fact that naval personnel used to use the grease that the gun shells were caked in to get rid of crabs which they had picked up after visiting some brothel overseas. The term crab fat derived from the grease they used, it happened to be the same colour as the RAF uniform. Hence the term.

What uniform would a world war 2 raf flight engineer wear?
He would wear the standard RAF uniform, however, after D Day he would often wear a set of khaki uniform (same as the British army uniform) in case he got shot down. This was because the Germans didn't take kindly to having their cities bombed every night and had a tendency to shoot bomber crews instead of taking them prisoner. So they would try to pass off as regular soldiers to try to limit the chance of this happening.
