Q: " Dashed decent of you , old boy !" ne anlama geliyor?
A: "Dashed" is a very old fashioned word for "very".

"Decent" means "good natured" or "kind" (when describing a person).

"Dashed decent of you" means "you did a very decent thing" or "you are very decent". You could say this after someone helped you with something.

"Old boy" is a way to refer to someone affectionately. Again, it's very old fashioned.

Hope that helps!
