    As a child (over 70 years ago), I read an adventure story featuring 2 young pilots (English?) and their Russian Cossack friend. He was always spinning yarns of various heroic exploits and the expression used by one of the pilots was “he can draw the long bow to suit the Queens’ taste.” Have you ever heard of this addition to the phrase?

    So you read “The Boy Allies” (WW1) series, too, Frank.
