“Where there’s a Willis away” … 1000 Ships, plus Cutty Sark, for Queen and Country

Last time so many ships were seen on the Thames River was 350 years ago, long before the Empire was built with united energy and intelligence, then preserved with great Royal talent. Even before the Cutty Sark sailed  first. Bravo @ all in Britain.

The old Lady (the Cutty Sark, of course, honni soit qui mal y pense) will be happy to hear what so many boats have to say about so many seas since so many years, all the more since she can’t herself sail “odlschool way” for Queen and Country anymore.

One may not always agree with the Brits, especially when French, but one must admit they did a great job at sea over centuries, even if one may regret not to see the Queen’s picture under the sun of the other side … of the world, in Hong-Kong too. Anyway, please Click on picture to hear “Rule Britannia”.

To wait for the naval extravaganza, the James Clavell novell “Tai-Pan” novel  is as close to pefect as possible. Otherwise, to read in French about less British changes in the world as it goes nowadays “the other side(s)”, please click on pictures.
