I'm lonesome since I cross'd the hills, And o'er the moor that's sedgy; With heavy thoughts my mind is fill'd, Since I parted with my Naggy When e'er I return to view the place, The tears doth fall and blind me, When I think on the charming grace Of the girl I left behind me.
And finally, 'Sweet Polly Oliver' tells the story of a woman who dresses as a male soldier in order to follow her true love into the army:. As sweet Polly Oliver lay musing in bed, A sudden strange fancy came into her head. So early next morning she softly arose, And dressed herself up in her dead brother's clothes. She cut her hair close, and she stained her face brown, And went for a soldier to fair London Town. The entire Borogravian army wears a standard red uniform.
Both the uniform and its standardisation point to the Borogravian army being modelled on the English later British army, whose soldiers were clad in red for nearly years from onward. Among many other armies, even those of major military powers, uniforms didn't truly become 'uniform' until as late as the First World War. In the English army, taking the King's or Queen's Shilling was a ritual of induction; upon taking a shilling coin as enlistment bounty, the inductee was legally considered a soldier.
The Borogravian national anthem does not seem to parody any specific national anthem. However, the line "Awake, ye sons of the Motherland" echoes France's "Allons, enfants de la Patrie" "come, children of the Fatherland" ; while "Frustrate the endless wiles of our enemies" echoes the second verse of Britain's "God Save the Queen":. O Lord our God, arise, Scatter our enemies, And make them fall; Confound their politics, Frustrate their knavish tricks; On thee our hopes we fix: God save us all.
We have seen Nuggan before, in The Last Hero. He is therein depicted as short and irritable; perhaps his stature indicates his demise is already underway. The name is both a play on the name 'Benedict' and on the word 'maledict', which Webster's defines as accursedness or the act of bringing a curse. Terry loves to play with Dracula's famous "I don't drink During the early s, the United States military reexamined its long-standing prohibition on homosexuals serving in the armed forces.
Social conservatives strongly opposed the change in policy; the compromise eventually reached, which persists to this writing , was labelled "don't ask, don't tell"; the administration of the military was not allowed to ask a recruit or soldier his or her sexual orientation, but revealing it to be homosexual or bisexual was still grounds for discharge. The compromise was widely ridiculed by all sides, but has been upheld five times in federal court.
Carborundum's drink contains silver and copper metal in some kind of acidic electrolyte. In such conditions, an electric current can be established between the silver and copper, acting as a primitive battery. The name 'Electric Floorbanger' also resonates with the Harvey Wallbanger, a classic s cocktail made of vodka, Galliano and orange. A running gag is that famous officers lend their names to articles of clothing. A quotation often attributed to George Bernard Shaw, although it may have originated with composer Max Reger: "I am in the smallest room of the house.
I have your review in front of me. Soon it will be behind me. Does it need pointing out that in this particular case, unbeknownst to Strappi, there are very good reasons why these soldiers wouldn't be able to "find 'em"? And it's one, two, three, What are we fighting for? Don't ask me, I don't give a damn, Next stop is Vietnam; And it's five, six, seven, Open up the pearly gates, Well there ain't no time to wonder why, Whoopee! Pikes are used defensively against cavalry charges, or offensively against infantry in the following fashion: a rank of pikemen advances on a rank of enemy infantry, pikes extended forward, and attempts to jab the enemy with their pikes; then draws swords and engages as standard infantry while the rank behind them advances with their pikes.
The Borogravian pike may be the "tool formerly used for lifting beets" referred to in the National Anthem. Borogravia uses paper currency, while Ankh-Morpork still uses precious-metal coins. In a world where coin is the standard of exchange, a country operating on paper currency not backed by precious metal "fiat money", in economic parlance might see its economy become isolated from the rest of the world. The very fact that paper money is being issued indicates that Borogravia may have been strapped for hard cash for some time.
Using this information and UK army pay scales, one can estimate that a second lieutenant in the Borogravian army receives approximately shillings per year as payment, compared to shillings per year for a first lieutenant; and that there are approximately As my original alt.
The Zlobenian cavalry uniforms hearken to those of Prussia and of the United States during the late 19th century. The original quote is: "We have met the enemy and they are ours -- two ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop", written by Oliver Hazard Perry in a Letter to General Harrison. These days, however, the better known version is probably Walt Kelly's "We have met the enemy, and they are us", used in his classic comic strip Pogo , during the Vietnam years.
Maladict curses; a rather clever Tom Swiftie. See the annotation for p. Albert Einstein: "The road to perdition has ever been accompanied by lip service to an ideal. During the Persian Gulf War, both sides relied on television news for information; private journalists were often better-informed than military intelligence.
