At 1500 ft QNH 1026

A mille cinq cents pieds QNH mille vingt six

It is common courtesy to give your altitude and QNH when arriving at an uncontrolled airfield.
In French the QNH is only given in single digits when below 1000hPa

For example, 996 = “neuf neuf six”
Whereas 1023 = “mille vingt trois”
