these two are the normal for events around home. they have been mentioned a lot recently about how bad they are. if you look at lytham wartime weekend photos on facebook there is a large amount of comments being met about them.

firstly they should never dress like in public as its even worse than allo allo which is a terrible way to portray (if you can call it that) to the hero's of the resistance. and secondly why the hell do you use a civil defense jacket with french insignia for free french forces and dress uniform when he is trying to be a civil with the most stupid collar tabs that are in the wrong place if they were used.

what is worrying as well is that he is a armorer for most of the small battles at local events. let alone hearing a loud chat she was having about how she prefers her new partner as he is older and knows what to do..... in front of kids while dressed like that. not very professional.

It's a well known fact that we French people have always had a string of onions on our mountain bikes. Personally I never forget to bring my onions when I go to work.

In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, p**s and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet.

That's really funny Pierre, your humour and comment is 100% authentically British on a British forum whereas those 2 semi-disguised public swinging exhibitionists - thats what it's all REALLY about, lets be honest are as authentically French as a fnucking eskimo

I go to France twice a year, 8th May and 11th November, since 2009 and I've never seen anything like it either.
I obviously need to look harder.........

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

One thing we can't deny is their perseverance...

They still lack a baguette though. We always enjoy a good baguette with our onions.
