    Out of interest which region did the actual endearment term "duck" originate from? An yorkshire bred auntie used to use it...but whether it was from yorkshire or her time in Nottingham I don't know...But she then emigrated to Swansea....and she was well known for it there. :) So does anyone know?

    Aldershot (y) We had an instructor who would suddenly shout DUCK! If you didn't, bells suddenly started ringing in your ears, but funny thing, not a church for miles. o_O

    Couldn't afford the goat. Had to settle for the three legged sheep.

    "me-duck" is commonly heard around Oxford and Coventry. A couple of friends of mine, now departed, both canal boat people, used the term frequently when in conversation.

    Something like 40 years ago I worked in Leicester and " 'ello me duck" was the morning greeting in the sandwich shop. And they sold "cobs" instead of the "rolls" this Essex boy asked for.:unsure:

    That's right, Leics, Derbys and Notts only sell 'cobs' :D all with 'duck' liberally peppered in the conversation:LOL:

    But anyway, Dux and friends were spotted in Bruges.....



    Along with Lola......clever girl!
