We are keen to hear your thoughts on the relationship and encourage our listeners to take original photographs and email or send them into the programme.

Listener Emails:

When I think of D-Day & the love affair we British have with the French, I always think of the parish church at Ranville in Normandy. Lt Brotheridge, killed during the assault on Pegasus Bridge (and he was probably the first British soldier to die in Normandy on D-Day) is buried within the walls of the churchyard at the insistence of the local people of Ranville - and not in the nearby (very peaceful & moving) British War Graves cemetery with the other Airborne dead.

From my memory, Lt Brotheridge lies alongside a free-French Commando killed later the same day and both graves are immediately inside the entrance to the churchyard. If you are on your holidays in France and that French bank manager appears rude, despite your best attempt at their language - forget it. Life is too precious & when the "chips are down", the French can be relied upon to do the right thing by us. Just ask Lt Brotheridge if you don't believe me.
