Sir: I can see what David Llewellyn is getting at when he writes (11 February) that the French have promoted the Scots scrum-half Chris Cusiter, "le petit general", above their own Jacques Fouroux, "le petit caporal". However, since "le petit caporal" is the nickname by which the French fondly refer to Napoleon himself, the promotion is not quite as significant as he suggests.
