GUEST,Dave MacKenzie Word meanings in Banks Of Sicily (83* d) RE: Word meanings in Banks Of Sicily 22 May 08

I seem to remember reading somewhere that swaddies is the original form from one of the Indian languages, and that squaddies was a later form by association with the English "squad".

It's a long time ago, but I can hear Hamish singing bastards with that intonation of his, but I also remember swaddies.

As for antrin, the only other place I can recall coming across it is in MacDiarmid's "Watergaw".
