So my guess for Petain in post 3265 was wrong, but Walloc's guess for the same man in post 3276 was right? Mmmm...do I detect a Scandanavian Alliance against the British here?

You detect my inability to read correctly. Your guess should obviously been treated as a corrct answer. No idea how I could miss that.
