In the Caribbean island of Barbados the word "nuh" acts similar. The usage in New Zealand is similar, and is more common in the North Island. It is also heard in the United States, especially Minnesota, Wisconsin, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (although the Scandinavian (North Germanic languages)-based Yooperism (Yooper dialect) "ya" is more common), Oklahoma and the New England region. In New England and Oklahoma, it is also used as a general exclamation as in Scotland and the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey. It is occasionally used to express indifference, in a similar way to "meh". *Isle of Man - Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man *Jersey - Lieutenant Governor of Jersey *New Zealand - The only person to have held the rank of Lieutenant Governor of New Zealand was Royal Navy Captain (Captain (Royal Navy)) William Hobson from 1839–1841 when New Zealand colony was a dependency (Dependent territory) of the colony of New South Wales, governed at that time by Sir George Gipps. When New Zealand was designated a Crown colony in 1841, Hobson was raised to the rank of governor, which he held until his death the following year. Subsequently in 1848 New Zealand was divided into three provinces: New Ulster (New Ulster Province), New Munster (New Munster Province), and New Leinster (New Leinster Province), each with their own Lieutenant Governors.

The Cook Islands and Niue, non-sovereign territories in free association (Associated state) with New Zealand, and Norfolk Island, an external territory (states and territories of Australia#External territories) of Australia, also compete separately. There are thus 53 members of the Commonwealth of Nations, but 72 competing teams at the Commonwealth Games.

They went back to Guernsey the same day. Herm's sandy beaches were soon used for practising landings from barges, in preparation for the invasion of England (Operation Sealion), but otherwise the island saw little of the Germans beyond officers making trips to shoot rabbits. Herm was spared the huge concrete blockhouses, anti-tank walls and observation towers that were built on the larger islands. *Dudley Zoo, West Midlands (West Midlands (county)) *Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (Jersey Zoological Park), Jersey, Channel Islands (founded by Gerald Durrell) *Edinburgh Zoo, Edinburgh, Scotland DATE OF BIRTH October 13, 1853 PLACE OF BIRTH Jersey, Channel Islands DATE OF DEATH February 12, 1929 Brito eventually retired to the island of Jersey.

Over the next five years Bob Gerard used R14B to great effect. He scored three consecutive victories in the Empire Trophy and two victories in the Jersey Road Race between 1947 and 1949, as well as regularly finishing in the top ten in many international standard events. In the first British Grand Prix, in 1948 (1948 British Grand Prix), Gerard drove the decade-old R14B to third place, beaten only by the brand new works' Maserati 4CLT 48s of Italian greats Luigi Villoresi and Alberto Ascari. The following year he went one better, taking second, again to a Maserati, this time driven by Swiss ace Toulo de Graffenried. His two wins and a Grand Prix second placing, along with seventh in the 1949 International Trophy (I BRDC International Trophy) race at Silverstone (Silverstone Circuit), earned Gerard the British Racing Drivers' Club's prestigious Gold Star (BRDC Gold Star) award for 1949. *6th, Jersey International Road Race.
