  1. Useful post. I’ve always used “Robert of York gained battles in vain.” I guess there was a general named Robert, whose country lost some war or other despite his victories in many of its battles. I don’t know if such a person ever existed, but it sure is a great way to remember the colors of the rainbow and their order!

    • Thanks for the inputs, many references to remember these colors.
