Re: How about more annoying the French!

"To be fair we celebrate Dunkirk as if it was a victory"

We were fortunate that at the time Hitler still seems to have thought there was a possibility of making peace with Britain. German soldiers have said after the war that they were reluctant to shoot.

But we're British - celebrating massive cock-ups is what we do, it's part of the national culture of self-deprecation.
