    That’s amazing Martina, I never realised that. TV/media has a lot to answwer for, with regards to distorting history. It’s like Father Christmas, his cloak was turned from green to red because of Coke A Cola, they changed the colour for some adverts back in the 1930/40s, and it just stuck. I’m not sure how true that is though, I heard it a long time ago.
