Are some of the above Masonic handshakes and gestures? I'm not sure, let me know if you can tell. Have you heard the story that Aleister Crowley invented Churchills' "peace sign"?

the british "V" is usually
the _back_ of the hand displayed.

look up the battle of Agincourt and the importance of longbowmen.
