Sir: You report ('Finding ten thousand Dervishes in a melee', Books, 7 May) that 'there is a new monument to Winston Churchill being raised in Calais, a 15ft bronze hand that offers the Victory V salute to British visitors as they enter France'. What sort of salute does it offer as they leave?

Yours faithfully,
