Apres Moi Le Deluge
The title of this entry is the motto on the 617 squadron badge granted after the dams raid.

It translates as "After me the flood".

It's also how I feel at the minute.

Current Mood: pensive pensive

Dunno about Louis XVI but there's a story in the Paul Brickhill book on the dams raid about one of the heralds complaining that Marie Antionette had said it ( or something similar ) and so it wasn't original and couldn't be allowed. He was politely told that the King had already approved it and did he was to go and argue this with His Majesty? :-))
