    If I remember correctly the English always referred to that bar as a "TOMMY"
    So you're saying the word "bar" is superfluous? "Tommy" is old an British term for a soldier.

    Thumbs up

    Tommy Bar is at the end of the block. Get your refreshments there, then go back to work.

    In the world of 'bonnets" and "lumpy tickover" any linguistic abberation is possible.
