Flew the flag here in France!

But all the non-English brits need not worry, as far as the French are concerned all Brits are "English"!

However, the Day is always a sad reminder to me as my Dad died on this day.

Who's this 'Baed'? Any relation to the Venerable Baed?

Am celebrating on Sunday at the Albert Hall. It's all pomp and circumstance, a bit like last night of the proms. We have a "box" and have loads of flags and decorations for it.
