No its not a bad case of athletes foot - but: I was out on a walk with 0B at the weekend and on getting to a Trig point she pointed at the crows foot stamped on it and asked 'wossthat then'. I informed her that it denoted that it was or had been owned by the military, to which she replied - why did they use a crow's foot as a symbol. I muttered something about young ones joining being called crows etc. But can anyone provide information about why the crows foot seems to be stamped on everything military - and why a crows foot. I await masses of well informed discussion on this point.
