French are invading!

#1
Was driving up the M3 on the way in this morning and encountered a large convoy of French army vehicles heading North up the motorway. They turned off at the A34 Junct.

Any ideas what they're up to?

Feel sorry for some of them, as it was pissing down with rain and there were a couple of trucks with blokes in the back... others were having a hard time of it in coaches... :lol:

Their options are to turn left onto the M4 and head for Somerset for Cheddar, or keep on A34 and cut across to M1 for Stilton. Unless they've head of a stock of Lymeswold at Bicester.

Having dined on fine chesse(s), will then be ready to lay down arms to country of their choice.

Why are French roads lined with trees?

So the German Army can march in the shade
I wanted to do that one...so...

What's the difference between the french and a slice of bread??

You can make soldiers out of a slice of bread...


BTW, if you think the French suck as soldiers, try les Belgiques!

They arent as bad as the dutch.

Heard a story once that was verified by about 5 people

Middle of and ex on a friday around 1700hrs dutch pack up, and drive off the area shouting, see you monday, and off they went!!

Monday morning around 1000hrs they come trundling back onto the area as though nothing was wrong!

I can confirm this about both Belgians and cloggies. In the '70s and 80s both would leave their positions on a Friday, and return on Monday - even in the middle of a major NATO exercise. They were national servicemen, and had feck all interest anyway, so it made no difference...
