"For someone like Adolf Mais (remember him?), who described the belts as worn by "Arnauten", he had in mind mercenaries specifically IN THE BALKANS, not what are known as Janicari or Janissaries generally. We need to remember what he would…"

"Alaa "jannisary" refers to a particular type of person, not a belt. It also differs considerably in form from "jakicar". I don't think you will prove anything of significance by going down this track, but as I said to Linda:…"

Hi, thank you for your message. I had replied with a real long message, talking and talking about Mali and my experience.. there.. and then it made "shwupps" and all disappeared. I don't know why this always happens to me on this website. I am sorry, I need now a break and will answer tomorrow. I wrote a lot, and it is all gone.... Sorry, I will try tomorrow, when I am fresh and full of energy... With best regards, Eva
