 USS Grenadier (SS-210) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
USS Grenadier (SS-210), a Tambor-class submarine, was the first ship of the United States Navy to be named for the grenadier fish, relatives of cod that are very common in bathyal and abyssal habitats.
On 20 June Grenadier participated in the search for O-9 (SS-70), which had failed to surface after a deep test dive, and was present two days later as memorial exercises were conducted over the spot where O-9 and her crew lay.
On 25 May Grenadier was diverted from her patrol area to Midway Island, where she formed part of the submarine patrol line as the American fleet in a bloody but brilliant battle handed the Imperial Navy its first defeat in some three hundred years.

 The British Grenadier   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Grenadiers early rise in popularity was no doubt due to the usefulness of this weapon given the common specifics and frequent occurence of seiges in the late 17th century.
The Grenadiers de France, (active in the 7-year's war) were formed from the Grenadier companies of several regiments that were reduced at the end of the war of the Austrian succession.
At length it is clear the Grenadiers role during the 17th and 18th century was essential at first as assault troops and eventually as simple all-purpose elite troops.

 GRENADIER - LoveToKnow Article on GRENADIER   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Besides their grenades and the firelock, grenadiers carried axes which, with the grenades, were employed in the assault of fortresses, as we are told in the celebrated song, The British Grenadiers.
The grenadier companies were formed always of the most powerful men in the regiment and, when the grenade ceased to be used, they maintained their existence as the crack companies of their battalions, taking the right of the line on parade and wearing the distinctive grenadier headdress.
Thus at the present day in Germany, Russia and other countries, the title of grenadiers is borne by line regiments, indistinguishable, except for details of uniform and often the esprit de corps inherited from the old ilite companies, from the rest.

 Rounhdnose Grenadier - Roughhead Grenadier
Grenadier belongs to the family Macrouridae, close relatives of the cod (Gadidae) family.
Yield is also a problem; removing the head and tail reduces yield to just 20 per cent in the form of a fillet that is long and paper thin at one end and as much as an inch in thickness at the other.
Like cod, grenadier can stand up well under sauces, is ideal for pan-baked preparations and is the perfect fish for frying.

 Grenadier Guards
The Grenadier Guards trace their origin back to around 1656 during Charles II's exile; when a new standing army was formed on the Restoration in 1660, it included the King's Royal Regiment of Foot Guards.
It was initially suggested that false names be added to the regimental roll so that the players could be given a better wage, but state papers from 1686 refer to payments being made to drummers and hautbois, implying that the crown took a direct interest in the music of the senior regiment of foot guards.
On this occasion, in 1906, the entire Grenadier Guards Band travelled to Oxford at their own expense to witness the ceremony of the conferring of the degree, and to hear the Vice-Chancellor comment, 'I understand that you are a pioneer in the army in regard to the degree of Doctor of Music.
