TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY SANDRA FERRER Close up of pink onions destined for Great Britain aboard the Etoile du Roy (Star of the King), a replica of an 18th-century sailing ship, on November 24, 2012 in Roscoff, western France. 'Onion Johnnies', the travelling salesmen whose berets and bicycles inspired Britain and much of the world's classic image of the archetypal Frenchman, are setting sail for England once more. The boat, weighed down by the hefty cargo, will assure the delivery of the onions to London on December 6, after stopovers on the Channel island of Jersey and at Portsmouth, on England's southern coast. The first French onion salesman to try his luck in England set sail from Roscoff in 1828. AFP PHOTO / FRED TANNEAU (Photo credit should read FRED TANNEAU/AFP/Getty Images)
