    Tommy Atkins (often just Tommy) is a term for a common soldier in the British Army that is particularly associated with World War I. German soldiers would call out to Tommy across no man's land if they wished to speak to a British soldier. French and Commonwealth troops would also call British soldiers "Tommies". In more recent times, the term Tommy Atkins has been used less frequently, although the name "Tom" is occasionally still heard, especially with regard to paratroopers.

    Tommy 係英國人好常用既名, 好似中文既[小明, 大文, 強仔]呢d好常用既名. 正寫係Thomas, 而Tommy 係簡寫. 第一次世界大戰時, 當德軍係[三不管地帶]要同英軍既人講野, 點知對方叫咩名啫, 咪是但叫Tommy, 英軍就會有人應佢啦, 有d約定俗成既意味. 習慣左之後, 同樣係盟友既法軍都係咁稱呼英軍做[Tommies] 即係個班Tommy咁.

    Jerry was a nickname given to World War II German soldiers, the German armed forces, or collectively the entirety of Nazi Germany. Although the nickname was originally created during World War I , it didn't find common use until WWII. Other nicknames used for the German soldiers in WWI and WWII were Fritz, Hun, Kraut, and Boche.

    第二次世界大戰時, d英軍叫番d德軍做Jerry, 因為Jerry 同Germany 音相似, 所以流行d. 其他一, 二戰時期德軍既暱稱仲有 Fritz, Hun, Kraut, and Boche, 都係德國人常用既名.

    Jerry has analogues from different eras such as Tommy (British), Charlie (Vietnamese), and Ivan (Russian).

    除左德軍叫Jerry, 英軍叫Tommy, 仲有俄軍叫Ivan,

    Charlie, short for "Victor Charlie" (VC), military slang for the Viet Cong

    越南軍人叫Charlie. 因為越共簡寫係VC, d人咪dup佢做Victor Charlie, 叫叫下變左Charlie囉.

    你個題目令我諗起一套好舊既卡通片, Tom係一隻貓, Jerry係一隻老鼠, 當然係死敵啦, 但每次強大既Tom要打弱小既Jerry都被佢聰明咁避過, 仲整估返轉頭... 年代正正是二次大戰時期MGM出品, 作者應該係美國人, 睇來唔鍾意英國人都唔定. Tom and Jerry就係never-ending rivalry永無休止既敵對既代表.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_and_jerry

    Tom & Jerry 係好受歡迎的美式卡通片。Tom 係貓,Jerry係老鼠仔,兩個同住一間屋。貓整天都在追逐老鼠,想把牠吞下;老鼠不斷躲避,借助嬌小體型同聰明同貓鬥法。

    可能係美國人玩幽默,把英軍比喻成永遠捉不到老鼠的貓,德軍就係不斷引誘貓追逐o既老鼠仔。
