- Apr 12, 2014When I was a boy, a 'stookie' was a plaster cast, as on a broken arm or leg. Comes from 'stucco', so 'stuka' would seem to be cognate with that.Alex

Subject: [Peterhead] Whats a stuka dolly ?
My Mum might say something like this ....................
Hes wakin a' bent ower like a stuka dolly
I've always taken it to mean stiff and awkward and clumsy from the context.
But I have been wondering "What exactly is/was a stuka dolly ?" Mum doesnt know people from Banff /Macduff dont know (Mums teenage years) so being as Mum's early childhood was in Peterhead she thinks she got it from Peterhead .................. any ideas ?
