Thank you! But I do have a question about #1. I thought that our Victory gesture meant something offensive in the British Empire, but there Churchill proudly using it. Thanks again.

The victory V is with the palm facing away from the person doing it. The V sign is with the palm facing towards the person doing it and with the fingers jabbed into the air.

"Sans" is French for "without," and it was Archduke Ferdinand's assassination that led to WWI.  He was "Franz Ferdinand," which sounds like "Sans Ferdinand."
