Spanish to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary - Military / Defense / names of bugle calls
Spanish term or phrase:fagina
In a (literary) passage about bugle calls soldiers practice during the Spanish Civil War, there is a list of a dozen or so different calls. I have been able to verify most of them, with the exceptions of fagina, parte, bando, paseo, silencio (apologies for more than one term in the entry, but they are so intimately related it seemed more logical than a query for each). Any help much appreciated!
Thank you. I'm still slightly confused because there was another call in the list I'm going from that translated to call for mess, but I don't have the text on me now. I'll figure it out somehow - gracias! Lisa 3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
