Calais Written in My Heart

calaisThere is a car here in Australia called a Holden Calais.  Someone presumably thought, “French seaside town – must be lovely!”

One can only assume that they have never actually been to Calais.

For many years, it was an English possession; the French did not bother to retake it until 1558.  Which is hardly very surprising.
