Sable is the heraldic term for black. It is also French for black. The Sable Arm was a term used for Union black troops in the ACW.

The James May documentary about Hornby/ Airfix?
Yeah I saw that and wondered - never heard it before.

It doesn't apply to me: I expect to live forever (and stash is accumulated accordingly ;) )
