You would certainly be feted in Dieppe - Canadians and Brits were very popular there - strange that the International Hotel didn't have a German flag amongst all the other flags - they have got very long memories.

Re: Holiday

Me and a friend hired a car in Malta when we stopped in a little fishing village to read a map. An old man came over to see if we wanted any help and, on hearing our accents, asked if we were British. When we told him we were he stuck his thumbs up and said 'Your the best' ! We were a bit puzzled but I think that was something to do with WW2. Very friendly folk, the Maltese.

By the way, couldn't say the same of the French. I got the distinct impression that many of the people we came across were quite rude, even hostile. Brittany is a very beautiful part of the country but I wouldn't apply that to the people we came across. They can stuff their onions where the monkey shoves his nuts!

Probably because seeing Brits reminds them how often we've kicked their arses & on other occasions saved same said Gallic scrawny arses from certain noisy neighbours! It's hard to be properly thankful when you're so arrogant.

Not like us modest Brits!
