    When I studied Germanicon, my German tutor who was Swissicon said that if there wasn't a "German word" for something then, sometimes, a word would be borrowed from another language, such as English. I realise that it is not a very good example, in this context, but it is the only example that I can remember, off the top of my head, because a fellow student tried to pronounce it "the German way" which sounded amusing to hear and ensured that I remembered it. Apparently, there isn't a German word for "Cornflakes" and so the English word is used, pronounced the English way. I assume that my German tutor was correct in this since she was Swiss and a native German speaker.

    In the WW1 Army Ordnance docs it applies the vast majority of them were factory staked because it mentions that the wood would conpress over time and the screws should be checked by breaking the staking.

    I've owned maybe a half dozen all original M1917s and all were staked.

    I am not a huge researcher of the M1917 but I guess I has assumed this was common knowledge.

    If I remember where that document was I will come back and post it
