Why Did the Brits Wear Red Coats?
During the recent royal wedding, millions around the world saw that Prince William chose to wear a uniform that included the famous British "red coat."
Many people asked, "Why have the British worn 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?"
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 wounded, the blood won't show and the men they are leading won't panic.
And that is why, from that day forward,
ALL THE FRENCH ARMY OFFICERS WEAR BROWN TROUSERS
