Poms showing Macron soldiers that don’t march backwards

The Poms have been showing Macron soldiers that don’t march backwards:

Theresa May welcomed the French president to the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst ahead of the UK-France summit.

Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron inspected British troops today as cold rain battered Sandhurst.

The Prime Minister and French President stood on a dais overlooking the Parade Square as the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards presented their bayonet-tipped SA80 rifles.

The band struck up the French national anthem La Marseillaise as the leaders arrived at the Royal Military Academy, walking the final 300 yards after stepping out of Mrs May’s dark green armoured Jaguar XJL.

Amid high-security at Sandhurst, they watched mounted soldiers from the King’s Troop, Royal Horse Artillery before a fly past of a 1,550mph RAF Typhoon fighter and a 1,200mph French air force Dassault Rafale.

Chancellor Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson stood and watched the ceremony before meetings with their French counterparts.

Earlier, Mrs May and Mr Macron tucked into lunch at a pub owned by chat show host Sir Michael Parkinson at the Michelin-starred Royal Oak in Littlefield Green, in the PM’s constituency of Maidenhead, Berksshire..

I wonder which of these regiments ran the Frogs ragged in the Napoleonic wars?

I looked it up. The only unit shown in the article is the Coldstream Guards.

The Coldstream Guards fought in the Napoleonic Wars winning honours at TalaveraBarrosaFuentes d’OnorSalamancaNivePeninsula, and Waterloo. The Coldstream Guards also participated in defeating the French at DettingenLincelles, and repelling the French invasion of Egypt.

The Poms couldn’t have picked a better regiment with which to insult the Frogs.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
