bookmark of the week


A couple of years ago on holiday in France the nearest large town – Dinard – had an exhibition all about Napoleon. It seemed like a good idea to go round it and see what they had to say about their greatest general. The sad thing is that my French doesn’t extend beyond asking for a baguette, Orangina and a beer and all of the descriptions with the exhibits were in French. Mind you the man who died in British imposed exile no doubt would have liked the idea that a bunch of English tourists (we were not alone) could not understand an exhibition all about him.

This bookmark is a silhouette of Napoleon and his officers and the grand army
