Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE re­cent com­mem­o­ra­tions at Fromelles of the World War I battle highlight to me how se­ri­ously the French take Lest We For­get by award­ing their high­est war hon­ours to our Dig­gers.

Time and again they find the old sol­diers and show their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of their war ser­vice. To me this speaks highly of the French char­ac­ter.

I am not French nor re­lated in any way (un­for­tu­nately).

Vive la France! ER­ROL DAVIS, St James.
