    "put in hack"

    Hi,

    What's the meaning of this idiom please? Is it used in BrE?
    (I heard it in the film "Top Gun",...The commander tells a pilot he'd screwed up a few tymes twice put in hack by him...Sort of "ignore"?)


    Ta!

    I’m not a teacher.

    Hi Mehrgan,

    "put in hack" (confined to the ship)
    "Put in Hack" was the primary way junior officers were punished for not being perfect.
