  • Description

    At about this time every year Britain is invaded. It's a friendly invasion though - hundreds of cycling Breton onion sellers.

    With strings of onions dangling from the ancient cycles these 'Onion Johnnies' go from house to house hawking their wares.

    This year a French Gendarme has come over. His mission is peaceful - he'll help his onion selling countrymen and give them advice.

    When they aren't cycling across Britain selling onions these beret-wearing Frenchmen farm or fish in their native Brittanny.
