- literal translation of the name: “Soldier's uniform”, since Blue is a type of military uniform coloring, used in oral speech as a noun , not an adjective, and Soldier is a clarification of its name, “soldier’s” (i.e. infantry field uniform), since there is also a cavalry version of the same color (eng. Cavalry Blue ). At the same time, the phrase is a play on words , derived from the same words, but in a different meaning: “Soldier longing” or “Soldier sadness”.
