I thought it worth bring this comment to one of my posts to your attention:
An Englishman's Castle: French Fighting Men

"many thanks for the link to info on operation exporter, My uncle was in 2 Kings Own and was killed on the 11th July 1941 by the Vichy French. I found his grave on the net (www.cwgc.org/cwgcinternet/casualty_details.aspx?casualty=2937131) and wanted to know more about the action he was involved in. Maybe he knew your old man, who knows. Needless to say we didn't use much French produce in our house"

I am honoured to have been of help, we must never forget.

And it reinforces my point that the modern view of the Vichy French as meek victims of the Nazis is not the whole truth!

Most of the English dead at Agincourt were the women and children in the baggage train - the French Dauphin and his retreating troops blundered across them while making their escape. A justifiable slaughter no doubt! The Vichy mentallity is not new, its been around for centuries, France and the "French" first, last and any left over, them again.

Frenchies, who needs them? See http://www.fuckfrance.com. We have a common market and they attack our sheep. If they were German sheep, they would surrender.
