Sorry, no etymologies found.
Throwing his helmet away, he strode forward a dozen paces and turned a startled harquebusier around.
Another harquebusier raised his gun and imitated the sound.
A nearby harquebusier, who had just finished reloading his gun, heard the sound and on some sudden impulse he raised the weapon and shook it carefully so that the bells at the ends of the ribbons rang as well.
