Why do Americans hold their torches in an overhand way ? Answered
Is there a particular reason why Americans, (especially police officers, in films at least), hold their torches in an overhand position?
It seems quite uncomfortable; I have never seen anyone in the UK hold a torch like that, we seem to align our thumbs along the top with the torch held out in front of us..
Anyway this observation is only based on films that I have watched so it might not actually be the case; but I can't help thinking about it when it happens during a film.
Help me to let it go...
