Med brinnande lunta..?

Maybe it's time to tell those of you that does not speak Swedish what the blog name means. It is actually a part of conditions for surrender, meaning that if you can surrender in this manner, you are not beaten, but can march off with pride and fighting spirit, ready to strike back. The full sentence reads: "Med brinnande lunta, flygande fanor och kula i munnen" and is translated into: "With burning slow match, flying banners and a bullet in the mouth." The bullet in the mouth part is for quick reload; when you fire your first round, all you have to do is top up with powder and spit the bullet into the muzzle. Then you are more or less ready for another go.
