  1. Wow! If you look close, you can see the little notches on the end of the gun where they attach the white flag!

    OK, sorry for picking on the frogs. Good on them for actually still being there.

  2. Make fun all you want jaymaster.

    The French military is as professional and as good as any you can name.

    By the way, the Italians are right up there with the very best too.

    So No “Never fired and only dropped once” jokes.

    PS: I’m not Italian or French!

  3. lets not forget> In WW2 At the beginning of the North African campaign, the first American deaths resulted from French fire.
