Well according to the Web-Grognards web site:
Grognard: a soldier of Napoleon's Old Guard; a veteran soldier; grumbler
(French) - Oxford English Dictionary, 2nd ed
'Grognard' is also slang for someone who likes playing wargames.A Grognard
is a veteran.
I'm surprised you don't know that one, never been to
Web-Grognards? It's a wargaming web site, lots of historical stuff
and board wargames ( as opposed to bored wargames ) though,
so if you're not into that...
Anyway, have a look-see:
By the way, how many of you folks are curry fans? I love the
stuff, and thought it was quite funny actually when I started reading
Jervis and others going on about the effects of beer and curry in WD
