Miles Kington – journalist & writer

Miles Kington, a very funny journalist and writer, died in 2008. He wrote about “Franglais”, a spoof English speaker’s guide to getting by in the French language.

He also wrote a battle cry for French navy:

To the water. It is the hour”, which he translated as: “A l’eau, c’est l’heure”.

You have to think about it, but even I got it in the end.
