THE recent commemorations at Fromelles of the World War I battle highlight to me how seriously the French take Lest We Forget by awarding their highest war honours to our Diggers.
Time and again they find the old soldiers and show their appreciation of their war service. To me this speaks highly of the French character.
I am not French nor related in any way (unfortunately).
Vive la France!
