didn't some frenchies land in west wales about 200 years ago ? some kind of 'lets incite Wales & ireland against England' thing ?

there was also a German scouting mission around Littlehampton but doubt that counts as Invasion, and was kept a bit hush hush

edit - fudge you, HH

^^ Well done you 2, 1797, French landed outside of Fishguard, surrendered (what a surprise ), problem was, they thought the women in traditional dress were troops, somewhere there is a grandfather clock with a french musket ball lodged in it, the soldier who fired it was beaten off by the women armed with brooms...

It's to do with sex and your beast? Your sex beast wears a bra, goes like the clappers, and is called Derrick?
