French Uniforms.....hehehehe

Recommended Posts

A long time ago, Britain and France were at war.

During one battle,The French captured an English

major. Taking the major to their headquarters, the

French general began to question him.


The French general asked, "Why do you English

officers all wear red coats? Don't you know the

red material makes you easier targets for us to

shoot at?"


In his bland English way, the major informed the

general that the reason English officers wear red

coats is so that if they are shot, the blood won't

show and the men they are leading won't panic.


And that is why from that day to now all French

Army officers wear brown pants



Hehehehehe.....Chief W.

this IS not the real story. As a matter of fact, WE had red pants until the begining of the first world war. The result was not so good military speaking, for the good reasons above. But we resisted any change in the uniform, because we found red pants more fashion to die in.

That's historical true, believe me or not.

It was not until april 1915 that the uniform was changed for the blue. Glory to our fashion heroes!!!!!
