If anyone wasn't aware, you literally can see the white cliffs of Dover from Calais.

I only found this out within the past year or so.

Pretty cool imo.

& There'll be Bluebirds Over the White Cliffs of Dover is such a good song. I just remembered it.

True but it''s just one of those things. Had never heard it before. It sounds like one of them 'facts' that could be repeated often but not actually true though.

I bet MLM would feel threatened if he could see the cliffs and they weren't white.

Released in 1942, this song must've ripped the hearts out of the thousands of homesick British troops fighting overseas. If you are of an emotional disposition, even today you may want to get the tissues out before you click on this:-
