WHY BRITISH WEAR RED COATS
A long time ago, Britain and France were at war.

During one battle, the French captured an English 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 English officers all wear red coats? Don't you know the red material
makes you easier targets for my men to shoot at?

In his bland English way, the officer informed the General that
the reason English Officers wear red coats is so that if they are shot, the
blood won't show, and the men they are leading won't panic.

And that is why, from that day to this, all French Army Officers
wear brown pants.
