Bonjour

Je suis diplomate comme une impi qui charge :twisted:

Je respectes les britanniques puisque je suis breton de souche et comme chacuns sait les bretons sont originaires de Grande-Bretagne...

Voyez Dantec,romancier Breton bien connu qui a abandonné sa nationalité Française ,car il estime que sur le plan ethnique,les Bretons de souches sont des britanniques...

I could make out some of what Pascal said.

"I am a diplomat as an impi that I respected the British since I am breton of strain and as each knows the bretons are originating in Great Britain see Dantec romance well known Breton who abandoned his French nationality because he believes"

Be careful guys!

3500 Under the last warriors of command inkhosi Godide kaNdlela broke away from the main Zulu army.

Their order Is To Reinforce the regiments on the coast ...

Today, I saw the great impi Split Into Two columns, marching A Few Miles Apart, a standard precaution When Approaching enemy ...

That night they camped near Babanango Mountain ...

They arrive, this Sunday will bleed ...

Today, the great impi will advance to the eastern slopes of the hill Siphezi located within 20 miles Isandhlwana ...

And that's where Chelmsford :joker: will happen in the late morning to set up his camp.

Sunday's going to be the festival of the spears ...

This morning,21 JANUARY,main zulu army breacks into small groups and move north-west into Ngwebeni valley.A patrol from the British camp is driven off by zulu scouts without realising the signifiance of the encounter...
The mind boggles.
