A long time ago, Britain and France were at war. During one battle the French captured a British Colonel.They took him to their headquarters and the French General began to question him. Finally as an afterthought the French General asked “Why do you British officers all wear red coats? Don’t you know the red material makes you easier targets for us to shoot at?” In his casual matter-of-fact way the British officer informed the General that the reason British officers wear red coats is so that if they are wounded the blood won’t show and the men they are leading won’t panic. And that is why from that day forward all French officers wear brown trousers.
