X is a military slang term for a sniper, disguised in the sprawling tree. This word has been particularly applied to the Finnish Winter War snipers and the World War II German snipers, who took pot-shots from hidden vantage points.During World War II, before 1944, the German high command left many Xs behind as their armies retreated, in order to delay the Soviet rush.ID X.

_______________________ is a merism (figure of speech) used preponderantly in the UK and North America, implying ‘all’, ‘total’, ‘everything’. The effective portions of a gun are "X" to hold ready the sparking mechanism;Y-the portion held, and Z-the aiming guide and conveyor for the explosive-driven ball. Collectively they are the weapon, therefore, everything.The term was first recorded in the letters of Sir Walter Scott in 1817, in the line "Like the High-landman’s gun, she wants _________________, to put her into repair".It is, however, thought that this term evolved into a popular saying some years before in England.FITB

Meyer Y was the patriarch of what got known as the Y family line. He was born in Lengnau, Aargau, Switzerland, was of German Jewish ancestry and emigrated to the US in 1847. He commenced in the importing line of work, but made his and his family’s fortune (which was one of the largest fortunes of the 19th century) in mining and smelting. He and his wife Barbara had ten surviving children.ID Y

In English, the plural form “Xs” is used for the contemporary nation, but in Dutch that plural has been cast off; one can thus differentiate between the older, larger X-s and the current area. So “Y” is used for the modern nation and de Y-en for the domains of Charles V. However, in official use the name of the realm is still Kingdom of the X-s; the plural has not been dismissed. The name Kingdom of X-s also refers to the UK of 1815 – 1830/39, which included present-day Belgium.ID X or Y .
