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

hahaha! As for the horse wreck, Greeks whether ancient or modern have never been a horse-people. :p

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?


I'm in Oklahoma, 66 runs through the state capital and I've been on it several times.

We say "Root" 66, but when used apart from 66, its "Rowt" as in Postal Route

I've done a few road miles in the States and I've driven Route 66.

Every American I spoke to about 'root 66' did not correct me on my pronunciation.

We have Postal Routes in the UK as well but they are pronounced as you would expect.

I don't know any American Posties so can't process that any further.

No point trying to correct them as they probably won't listen anyway. Just smile.

We feel the same about your pronunciation of "Aluminum", "Basil", and "Bucket"

It's OK. There's a small bar in the bore to stop it being fired.  Shocked

Thanks for the videos on the B1 fsn good stuff!!

explains a lot about why the French Army ended up with such a vehicle. I'll look out for Cheiftains other "inside the hatch" vids.

Wonder if Mrs Shy would let me visit Saumar if we ever get to France again - After my last visit to Bovington I think I would have to take her to Paris for a week first  Wink

The Chieftain has done a speed trip around Samur.

Fascinating to see some real black powder gun recoil on full charge for a change and getting some insight into how the incoming rounds sound when you are at the receiving end. Not so sure all the rounds are explosive as the title suggests plus, if you look closely, you will see there are definitely two types of gun used in this demo.

Really interesting video, both sight and sound. Given how much recoil was involved, causing the guns to be relaid between shots, the accuracy was pretty good. I wonder where they got the Austrian AFV?  Smiley
