De Gaulle



Text  



Dave, I’m no great fan of De Gaulle (he was no friend to either Britain or America), but I think that I’m right to recall that it was either at that service or at a celebratory parade at around the same time that someone fired some shots in his general direction. Everyone ducked or threw him or herself to the ground except, naturellement, De Gaulle.

Magnificent.
