Mark Hone Posted 22 April , 2016 Share Posted 22 April , 2016 In the BBC radio series 'Home Front', set in 1916, I have noticed a couple of characters use the term 'foxhole' when they are referring to the trenches. When did this term come into common usage? My gut feeling is that it dates from the Second World War, probably American in origin. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
