Definition of bluejacket in English:
A sailor in the navy.
- The only question is if it will be a hard charging khaki, or if we'll have to wait for one of our bluejackets to grow into the role.
- And that, too, was a symptom of a continuing source of tension: The officers were eating as if they were still in harbor while the bluejackets were dining only on salt meat and biscuit.
- Lunch for the bluejackets was a basic affair, salt pork and pea soup.
