Good point on the two canteens. I assume you mean Dogfaces? Our Marines call us Pongos as they reckon we don't shower enough!!! My own regiment was known as Bogtrotters, and Martins as Donkey Whallopers!

Some Japanese will be crossing the pond in due course.

thanks Bruce
Bloody infantry! Donkey Whalloper is any mounted cavalryman. The official nickname of The Life Guards is "The Tins" (as in "tin belly") it has also been "The Cheeses" 1st Life Guards and "Piccadilly Butchers" (changed to "Piccadilli Cowboys") 2nd Life Guards.
