Hodinkee Atlanta

Post by Victor88 »

Glancing through the photo report of Hodinkee’s Atlanta meet up, I was pleased to see a Trident Bronze holding it’s own amidst all the AP RO’s…

Wondering if the owner is part of this esteemed forum and can shed some light on the event?

It’s always great to see CWL’s holding their own. Not sure of the two fingered gesture Jamil Harris was giving though! Does it mean something different in the States?

It means “peace” in the US. What does it mean in the UK?

^^^^ Anecdotally it's the salute by English Longbowmen to the French, during the 100 years war, implying "I've still got my fingers" (and am therefore able to continue firing my longbow).

.. and of course the V for victory sign epitomised by Churchill but also used around the world to signify victory. For Brits it's best known palm forward for Victory but palm backwards for the 'F you!' or words to that effect described by Guy, but even Churchill used it both ways round.
