: : : Please somebody tell me where the term "use your loaf" comes from!

: : Loaf of bread, head!

: Yes, it's Cockney rhyming slang.

I was told that this comes from soldiers trying to avoid enemy snipers in the forests. in order to draw fire they would put the loaf of bread on their bayonet (with hat). I saw this in a program and was hoping someone else had seen it!!
