Moonraker Posted 1 February , 2006 Share Posted 1 February , 2006 Just seen a WWI photo of soldiers outside a hut with KNUTS on the door. I'm guessing this was a popular term in WWI, a bit like "we are the CHAMPIONS", rather than a regimental nickname. I recall a popular music-hall song went: I'm Gilbert the Filbert, The knut [nut?] with a K, The Pride of Piccadily, A blase roue. A search of The Times came up with this on February 22, 1916, but exactly what was a knut? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
