In Reply to: The Whole Nine Yards posted by Martin Kerwin on January 13, 2005

: During one of his War Walks Television Programmes Prof Richard Holmes reported on an early WW1 battle. during this programme he claimed that this battle was where the use of the whole nine yards was started. I am not sure as to the exact programme but there was only one on WW1 in the series. I do not think as a proffessor he would quote this as a source if he were not sure.

Check our archives for lots of other "he said" "I heard" and other third-party "foaf" theories. We'd really perfer evidence.
