Some foreigners regard this word as racist. In journalism, the expression puu dee (ผู้ดี) meaning 'nobleman' is sometimes used to denote 'English'.[ citation needed ] These terms are also used to refer to England in unofficial contexts.

Other Irish units whose experience was very similar to the 36th division were the 24-27th battalions, Northumberland Fusiliers, better known as the Tyneside Irish brigade.

Categories such as ‘pro-war’ and ‘anti-war’ often prove inadequate, when tested against the complexity of individual poems.
