Porthole Cruise Magazine - - Trending Now - — CHANEL SAM­SON

In the late 1990s, Nick and Giles were fly­ing across France in their 1930s bi­plane. The weather was clos­ing in and a rough-run­ning en­gine forced them to make an emer­gency land­ing. Keen to avoid the French au­thor­i­ties, the broth­ers were more than happy to ac­cept the gra­cious help of the farmer in whose field they had landed and who of­fered his home to the broth­ers while the air­craft took cover in the barn.

It turned out that their host had flown air­craft dur­ing the war and was a gifted en­gi­neer. Hal­fre­stored wall clocks lay every­where, to­gether with nu­mer­ous en­gine parts. The farmer still even wore his own fa­ther’s wrist­watch. The broth­ers promised that his warm hos­pi­tal­ity would never be for­got­ten. His name? An­toine Bremont.
