  • French military

    Couldn't help but feel slightly worried when I heard the French military will be guarding the likes of Bush, Blair and other world leaders for the weekends D Day Memorials. Doesn't exactly make you feel easy does it!

    Now for a joke :-

    An American vet. decides to go to France on holiday, when he arrives he is asked for his passport and replies 'I don't have one.' The french border controller says 'but you need a passport to get in zee country!' The American looks stunned so replies: 'I didn't need a passport on my last visit in 1944, I landed on the beaches of Normandy and there wasn't a Frenchman in sight!'

    :D :D :D

            I can see it already. "Americas President Bush and Englands President Blaire, where assasinated by AlQuida snipers. The French Army was nowhere to be seen." lol

              That would be Englands "Prime Minister".

                  It's a popular misconception that the french defeated the english at Hastings in 1066. It was in fact the Normans (roughly translated - Norse Man) that won the day. Back in those days the french lived in Brettonia and were pressed into service by the Norse. King Harold , the english king was actually related to William the Conqueror (cousin I think) and when William invaded he could not break Harolds line.
                  The battle waged on with William trying to find a weak point but the English held strong. That was until a curious thing happened.
                  For some reason word got out that William had been killed. The normans held there ground but there was one unit of soldiers, employed by the normans that turned around and fled the scene of the battle - can you guess who...

                  Yes - it was the french (brettonians). Of course William wasn't dead but this did actually win him the battle. Seeing the french turn tail and run caused one of Harolds commanders to take his men and charge after them. This was the opening William needed. He sent his cavalry into the unit that broke off and they made short work of them.

                  This sudden loss made Harolds army massively understrength, it was inevitable that the battle would be lost for Harold now.

                  Those pesky french! :)

                    The French probably claimed it was a tactical retreat :icon12:

                        Na.... they pretty much ran like cowards. They ran so hard in fact that their footprints are still embedded in the soil at Hastings ;)
