Interesting. I have heard of 'hors de combat' which I think means that you are out of it, but not this one. I could ask my French-speaking wife but I don't think she is good at this sort of thing!

So what does Hors [de] Combat mean in French. Come in Corsaire!

But I do understand "Belgi oorlog kantoor" (Belgian War Office) because it would be the same in Afrikaans winkngrin
