Onze / Onze / Onze
It’s Armistice Day today, and a national holiday. The French wear a blue cornflower – le Bleuet de France – but not to the same extent we wear our poppies. There was a televised memorial service at the Arc de Triomphe on TF1 and lots of related bits and pieces on other channels, including Sky News International!
I went to the war memorial at Oullins to see what went on at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month but, as you can see, not a lot! Perhaps I should’ve gone to the mairie.
In any case – lest we forget!
