Good on you ashman. I'm glad someone has responded to my plea for a time passing quiz.

By the way, dunc tells me he has an idea for a European Championship game from 10th June to 10th July to keep us going for a month. That sounds good as well.

PS "PM's ONLY" Do we have to send you a PM to prove we read it even if we have no idea? :lol:

I give clues for anyone who gets it wrong or is struggling. e.g. I gave the clue LZ to question one to anyone who was stuck. My domain please.

Meaning of the Phrase 'Waltzing Matilda'

The title of the song is derived from an Australian phrase "waltzing the matilda" which is no longer in use today. It is believed to have originated from German immigrants who started settling in Australia from 1838.
Waltzing is from the German term 'auf der walz' which meant to travel while learning a trade. Young German apprentices in those days travelled from place to place working under a master craftsman earning a living as they went and sleeping wherever they could. The German word 'walz' became 'waltz' in Australia. The waltz was a fashionable dance at the time and Australians were familiar with it.
Matilda has German origins too and means Mighty Battle Maiden. It is believed to have been given to females who accompanied soldiers during the Thirty Year Wars in Europe. This came to mean "to be kept warm at night" and later to mean the great army coats or blankets that soldiers wrapped themselves with. These were rolled into a swag and carried behind their shoulders while marching.
