MOTTO OF THE PRINCE OF WALES'S OWN REGIMENT OF YORKSHIRE info


THEIR MOTTO IS "NEC ASPERA TERRENT" THIS SHOULD ALSO COME BEFORE THE KINGS REGIMENT WHO HAVE THE SAME MOTTO BECAUSE THEY ARE A MORE SENIOR REGIMENT BEING THE 14TH/15TH REGIMENT OF FOOT.

I have found six different translations:

Quote:
"Frightened by No Difficulties,"
Quote:
"Difficulties Do Not Daunt"
Quote:
"Difficulties daunt us not"
Quote:
"Not even hardships deter us"
Quote:
"No Fear on Earth"
Quote:
''Difficulties be damned''
Anyone who knows latin better than me out there?????

Not me, but its safe to say we get the general idea of what it mean

Nec is "not, nor" and terrent is from terros, which is "to scare" and aspera is "adversity".

so, i guess "frightened by no adversities" would be the best translation, or at least the most accurate.

FYI, i'm no latin expert, or even novice. I'm just a schmoe with a dictionary. If any of this is wrong, it wouldn't surprise me at all. It's all greek to me...well, latin. whatever, i don't understand any of it. Just me and a dictionary.

It can be translated simply to mean "difficulties do not frighten us"

All of those translations fit the bill, Latin can be manipulated in any way provided the end translation fits the meaning. I'm learning that the hard way with Cicero's Pro Caelio in Latin IV right now.

I think it's worth noting that the phase in question is also the motto of the US 27th Infantry Regiment (The Wolfhounds!), which is posted on the site, and the title of the collected diaries of Colonel Christian von Ompteda, Freidrich Lindau and Major George von Coulon all of the King's German Legion. 8)
