Found him in a street in Nantes.
Do you mean , the duck ? .
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?
Seems to fit the description and the picture is pretty close too.
Oh I definitely mean the dux
Aldershot 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.
Amazing. Rhyming slang has even reached France. I bet the academie français won't be happy with that.
Was that before or after you went in and bought the blow up goat??
Hi LilacMoss, it's a Stoke on Trent saying also Duck.
The only area i heard Duck was whilst working in Derbyshire in the mining community
Couldn't afford the goat. Had to settle for the three legged sheep.
During the strike, no doubt??
I see you met GJH then........
Was that Aldershot or ash? Had the same problem at longmoor.
"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.
Definitely a Nottingham expression as in eyup mi duck aya gorra wi yer
Meaning: Hi there, did you bring the wife ?
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.
That's right, Leics, Derbys and Notts only sell 'cobs' all with 'duck' liberally peppered in the conversation
But anyway, Dux and friends were spotted in Bruges.....
Along with Lola......clever girl!
With the puncture repair kit?
See compare the picture it is definitely him up there, probably climbed out the window when a person known to him came in the shop .
