I don't know what poem you've read, but yes, that phrase is used in both poetry and prose to mean those generals (high ranking officers) who are in the "parlors" and offices, directing the ranks of men who get shot at.

1. This is a picture of Tom. 2. This is a picture of Tom's. -------------------------------- Does #1 mean as follows? Tom is in this picture. yes Does #2 mean as follows? This picture is Tom's. This is a picture which Tom has taken. yes This picture belongs to Tom. yes

English
"where" is referring to a place, so it has to be "this island" "right here" and "on this island" are adverbial phrases, not appositives. You can remove either one and the sentence will still make sense.

2 is the correct way to phrase an indirect question. 3 is incorrect. 5 is correct. You can also write this another way: I know why you think so.

Yes, 1 and 2 mean the same thing. In #1, you can use "some of them," "any of them," "all of them," and others. In #2, you can use all except "any of them." #s 3, 4, and 5 are all correct, yes.

It would be better to use "the" in place of "an" in all these. When you use "an," you're implying that it could be just any apple ... or maybe even all of them. But if you use "the," you are referring to a particular apple.

I'd use "for" rather than "of." I don't think "of" is incorrect, but I think "for" is better. I think all the variations (a-e) are commonly used. I think "a" is the best one.
