Subject: RE: BS: Scots Rhyming Slang???
Just throwing in another sheugh (sough, cheuch...? who knows... who cares?) I can recall aged relatives of mine in the nineteen-fifties referring to a heavy duty gardening implement as a sheugh (or similar) - This was a straight bladed sickle on a three foot haft used for pruning and may have had a connection to cutting hedgerows.
