Another one is "route." The word "route" is French for road and pronounced "root." However, nowadays, I've noticed that Americans say "rowt."  They didn't used to say "rowt" - they said "root" like the rest of us (e.g., see Chuck Berry below). "Rowt" is when your men run away (rout). What's going on, America?

What's the point of having letters in words if you're not going to use them?

Excellent and interesting video which gave many examples I had not heard.
Incidently the first land battle of the ACW (arguably) is Philippi (Virginia) which is frequently mispronounced.

Aluminum may be the exception that proves the rule.  Undecided  Tongue

Remember it was East Virginia that you recently visited, 'cause they lost!

Some good images of interwar Greek kit (before the Metaxas dictatorship reforms). An interesting what if would be a Greek Civil War in 1935-1936 if the Venizelists had not botched badly their attempt to win over greek Macedonia. Kondylis (with probably the A and B Corps)  vs. Plastiras (with C and D corps) along the Vardar/Axios river.

#Invalid YouTube Link#

the later royalist coup by Kondylis (winner of the 1935 contest)

#Invalid YouTube Link#

Also some images of kit in 1926

Watched with interest, thanks.
By analogy a matchlock should actually be termed a “fusil” while a flintlock should be a “fuzil, which means “fusiliers” are actually “fuziliers”!

I shall now press on KT’s vids.

I also liked KT’s three videos. The inter-war is a fascinating period world-wide.

In the last video, the English language slide labeled the Evzones as “crack highland infantry” which seems a useful explanation for a general audience. Also, about half way through, there is an actual horse wreck!

The narration in the second vid was French, but was that Greek in the first one?  Undecided  Tongue

Terrain building has changed a bit in 60 years, as has wargamers' sartorial standards.
