Do you know that...

... background colors of real pirate flags were either red or black. Although black is the color associated with pirate flags, early pirates sailed under red flags. Red pirate flags were a symbol that little or no mercy would be given to the ones who will cross their way. Red pirate flags were quickly replaced by black pirate flags that symbolized death.

... when a pirate says that someone was sent to Davy Jones' Locker, it means that the person has died or drowned at the sea. This idiom was first mentioned in a book of Tobias Smolett, "The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle" in 1752. It is a nautical term for the graveyard of sailors and pirates at the very bottom of the ocean.
The legend of Davy Jones was very popular among the pirates and symbolizes the horrible spirit of the deep.

... the clothes of pirate seamen were mismatched with multi-colors so they were called 'Motley Crew' (Motley was a multi-colored woollen fabric woven of mixed threads in 14th to 17th century England).

Do you know that...

...most pirates didn’t last very long: many were killed or injured in battle or in fights amongst themselves, and medical facilities were usually non-existent. Even one of the most famous pirates Bartholomew Roberts who had a very long and successful career for a pirate, was only active for about three years from 1719 to 1722.

... a well known pirate Henry Morgan was knighted by the queen of England and became Sir Henry Morgan. Not only was he knighted, he was made deputy governor of Jamaica.

... the popularization and idolization of the pirate lifestyle started in 1724 when a book named "A General History of the Pirates" became the first one to give detailed accounts of all major pirate captains of the age.

pirates used rum not only to drink it but also to extend the life of the water? A dram (a small amount) of alcohol, normally rum, was often added to the water to kill the algae and make it taste better.

Ahoy!

The correct answers to our quiz!

1. What were the main requirements to become a grenadier? What was grenadier's specialization? Do grenadiers exist now?

A grenadier was originally a specialized soldier, first established as a distinct role in the mid-to-late 17th century, for the throwing of grenades and sometimes assault operations. At this time grenadiers were chosen from the strongest and largest soldiers. By the 19th century, the throwing of grenades was no longer relevant, but grenadiers were still chosen for being the most physically powerful soldiers and would lead assaults in the field of battle. Grenadiers would also often lead the storming of breaches in siege warfare, although this role was more usually fulfilled by all-arm units of volunteers called forlorn hopes, and might also be fulfilled by sappers or pioneers.

2. How did cuirassier armor change with time?

The first cuirassiers did not appear very different from the fully armoured Late Medieval man-at-arms. They wore three-quarters armour that covered the entire upper body as well as the front half of the legs down to the knee. The head was protected by a close helm, burgonet or lobster tail pot helmet, usually worn with a gorget for the neck. The torso was protected by a breast and back plate, sometimes reinforced by a 'placate'. The arms and shoulders were fully armoured with pauldrons, rerebraces, elbow couters and vambraces. Armoured gauntlets were often abandoned, particularly for the right hand, as they interfered with the loading of pistols. Long tassets, instead of a combination of short tassets with cuisses, protected the front of the thighs and knees, Riding boots were substituted for lower leg armour (greaves and sabatons). Weapons included a pair of pistols in saddle holsters, these were the primary weapons instead of a lance, a 'horseman's pick' (a type of war hammer) was sometimes employed and a sword. Horse armour was not used.
During the latter half of the 16th century the heavy "knightly" lance gradually fell out of use, perhaps because of the widespread adoption of the infantry pike. Also the lance reqired a great amount of practice to perfect its use, whilst proficiency in the use of firearms was considerably more easily acquired.

Body armour, restricted to a breast and backplate, fell in and out of use during the 18th century; for example British cavalry entered the War of the Spanish Succession without body armour, although they readopted it during the conflict. By the time of the French Revolutionary War, few heavy cavalry regiments, excepting those of Austria, wore the cuirass on campaign. Most heavy cavalry wore the tricorne hat, which evolved into the bicorne, or cocked hat, towards the close of the century. In the first two decades of the 19th century, helmets, often of hardened leather with brass reinforcement (though the French used iron-skulled helmets for their cuirassiers), replaced the bicorne hat.

3. When did the word cannoneer appear? What is the general name of the unit cannoneers belong to?

"Cannoneer" is a word for an artillery gunner, first recorded in the 16th century. Current titles for a Soldier in the 13B career field within the US Army is "Cannon Crewmember", but more commonly referred to by the shorter "Cannoneer". An artillery Private is known as a Kanonier in German and Polish, a Kanonnier in Dutch, and a Канонир in Russian; today these would likely be rendered in English as "cannon".

So let's wish happy Independence day to our American players.

Pirates are neither timid, nor they are afraid of the sea! So let freedom never perish in our hands.
