If you want to know about the British

Might help to better understand some of our members from the UK and the society out of which the men who carried the Enfield came . Amusing information and not stuffy and textbook.

Example:

Bangers and Mash (mashed potatoes and sausages).

Bangers are sausages in England. (The reason sausages were nicknamed bangers is that during wartime rationing they were so filled with water they often exploded when they were fried.)



Thanks to DuncaninFrance for this one. :GBR:
