Expressions: " Going The Whole Nine Yards "

Written by: Peter Fishlock : 04 Jun 2019

I think it is fair to say that no matter where you are from, some time in your life you will find yourself repeating an old saying or expression without really knowing the real meaning behind it. We decided to research some of the ones we find ourselves saying over here in blighty. In this episode we take a shot at, "Going the whole nine yards".

Whilst you are here...

We would like to invite you to claim a place on 'The History Projects' hall of recognition. You might have noticed the Hexagons on the sides of the screen, this is our recognition wall. You can have a picture of your choice on our recognition wall, whether it be you, your dog or even a family member for just £5 a month. This money helps us keep the webpage and our social media content alive and also pays for the other great work we do such as; making documentaries, visiting schools and delivering other great community projects.

Of course, you do not have to give £5 a month. If you would like to donate less or more then of course that is fine, £5 is just how much it costs to get a hexagon. You could sponsor 3 hexagons if you choose or just donate £1 a month or any amount of your choice.

Every contribution we receive from readers such as yourself helps us, help others, and allows us to make sure that the lessons history has taught us will never be lost.
