"Tally-ho" is frequently associated with a call to riders during a fox hunt. "Tally-ho" reportedly came from the Palestinian-Arabic for "Come here" (Tal hum) and brought to the European continent by soldiers returning home from the Crusades. It was first introduced in England after the Norman Conquest in 1066, by William The Conqueror who was an avid deer hunter. The old Norman phrase was "Tye Hillaut" and was shouted when a deer had been found. The phrase was changed to became "Tally oh" when introduced in England and is still shouted in fox hunts today. During WW11, it was commonly shouted by fighter pilots as a warning when enemy aircraft had been spotted and it has become the squadron motto of the famous 609th West Riding Squadron. Civilian pilots use "Tally-ho" telling air traffic controllers they have spotted air traffic on take off.
