gusset

In heraldry, a gusset in a coast of arms is an abatement or mark of dishonour. It is formed by a line drawn from the dexter or sinister chief point one third across the shield, and then descending perpendicularly to the base. It may be on either the dexter or sinister side of the shield; on the former it is an abatement for adultery; on the latter for drunkenness.

Good-conduct pay

Good-conduct pay is an addition made in the British army to the daily pay of corporals and private soldiers, in consideration of long service unaccompanied by bad behaviour. The amount awarded at one time is 1d[НВ1] . a day, with one white chevron on the arm as a badge of distinction. Successive awards of good-conduct pay may raise the total grant to 6d. a day, with a corresponding number of stripes on the arm.

German is a very rich language, infinitely richer than the French.

Two men of letters were likewise in company with us, one a native of Strasburg, who as such may in some measure be looked on as both French and German ; the other, a Frenchman, but very conversant with our language. Before this kind of tribunal of our own setting up, we brought the languages of the several nations, in order to an examination of their merits and defeats.

We all unanimously agreed that the German is a very rich language, infinitely richer than the French.

Ожидается, что изображение флага будет наноситься на туалетную бумагу, чтобы граждане видели символику России везде и повсюду.
