I think I know most of them, but there is one I'm not sure of.  GBU.  I think it is "God bless you".  Yes?

That's my understanding of GBU, yes. I have a few friends who fought in WWII and there may be some more you haven't come across.

HH (added to the end of the Nazi transmissions) Heil Hitler

FUBAR Fouled up beyond all recognition, although another word is sometimes substituted for the first character.

SNAFU Situation normal, all fouled up.

GSK God save the King, I presume that GSQ would be God save the Queen although I have never heard either used.

I was taught high speed CW by an ex-U Boat radio operator and for years I had a friend who fought in the Desert Rats, both are now SK. They taught me some other abbreviations as well but I'm not going to mention them here because I'll get banned <g>.
