Echoes of the Auld Alliance in wartime Britain.

"In every combat where for five centuries the destiny of France was at stake, there were always men of Scotland to fight side by side with men of France*, and what Frenchmen feel is that no people has ever been more generous than yours with its friendship." -- de Gaulle, Edinburgh 1942

*an example being the Battle of Baugé in 1421, when a 6,000 strong Scottish army inflicted a major defeat on a 10,000 strong English army during the Hundred Years War. LinkExternal link
