  4. Surprised the French can manage flags in colour. For god knows how long they have shown a preference for white.... :-D:-D
  5. Errr ... Isn't he an Aussie??

    "... On a slightly deviant point a majority of foreign ships that vessel the UK do not fly the Union Jack as a courtesy flag they fly Red Ensign, which is incorrect.
    - KEITH BEVERLEY, Gillingham Dorset"

    The Red Ensign is the appropriate courtesy flag for civilian ships visiting UK waters!

    Where do they breed these dipsticks? Ahhh, Dorset! That explains that then!

    In defence of my beloved "Forgotten County", Gillingham is pretty well as far as you can get from the sea in Darzet. Not suprisingly lots of close families there, second only to parts of Cumbria I understand.
  8. The Frogs have been making Pusser's flags on and off for years. As a none warlike store the contract invitations have to go in the European Journal. The gallic sew and sews usually beat the other EU bidders on price.

    Move down the Clapham omnibus; there's nothing to see here.
