[Joke] Why the British wore Red Coats

During the recent royal wedding, the millions around
the world saw that Prince William chose to wear a uniform
that included the famous British "red coat." Many people
have asked, "why did the British wear red coats in battle?"
A long time ago, Britain and France were at war. During
one battle, the French captured a British 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 British officers all wear red coats? Don't you
know the red material makes you easier targets for us to shoot at?"
In his casual, matter-of-fact, way, the officer informed
the General that the reason British 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 forward, all French
Army officers wear brown trousers.

And now you know the real story......
