#Throwback to this badass group in France. The Gendarmerie. During the 75th Anniversary of D-Day events in Normandy, with tens of thousands of people in attendance, they worked tirelessly to keep order and safety. Hats off to all them. Made friends with some and even did some patch swapping.

After Guernsey we went back to France for a few more days...we were actually in Normandy for D-Day but unfortunately I caught some horrible sickness so we missed most of the festivities and I don't have any pictures from that part of the trip. We decided to head back to Paris....where Sean ended up getting sick too 😂
But we still got to enjoy one last night in France at the Lapin Agile in Montmartre - our favorite neighborhood in Paris! Overall it was a near perfect trip and we were so lucky to get to spend so much time there - I've now spent a full month of my life in France and am now plotting how I can go back for another visit.

Anyone else going somewhere marvelous this summer? Maybe for a costume event?

In early June, I was commissioned by @veteransaffairscanada to document the 75th D-Day commemorations for a week with Canadian veterans.
.
Canadian veterans came back to share memories of the Normandy battle for the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019. About 14,000 Canadians were among the 150,000 Allied troops who landed on its beaches or parachuted into Normandy.

The OC, Major Fox, enjoying the view out over Pegasus Bridge. All the sweeter for being the end of a 500 mile walk, in just 20 days.

Thank you to our amazing sponsor @sineatersguild for all their support- it’s so appreciated!
These tees were worn day in and day out. They kept their colour and shape and didn’t chafe or shrink. Couldn’t ask for better!

We were so happy hosting French Ambassador Philippe Étienne who chose, for his first visit to New Orleans, to celebrate Bastille Day with us. So many fruitful exchanges, moving moments, and new perspectives. Thank you, and long live the friendship between 🇫🇷 and 🇺🇸 !

The special D-Day 75 painted aircraft of the Belgian Air Component made a formation pass during the Florennes Aviation Days 2019. The 2 F16s from the 349 and 350 squadrons all decorated with invasion stripes. Beautiful sight... both of them already in Fairford...

Un drapeau qui flotte à l’horizon.
Des sépultures toutes alignées à la perfection
Dans une quantité qui fait perdre la raison.
Ce spectacle provoque un sentiment de glaciation. [Photo prise par moi / quatrain composé par moi aussi]

Heroes.

Today these gents finished 500 miles of graft, at the famous Pegasus Bridge.

Their feet are sore, but a beer is making it all better, and your charity donations even more so!

Thank you for all your support, means the world to everyone here and to @supportourparas
https://www.justgiving.com/enduringheritage
Please consider a final donation - it will make all the blisters, tiredness and hobbling on aching legs worthwhile. Even the sleeping in fields.

Pujol sat down at his desk. Perhaps he asked Sarah Bishop about her evening. Or he exchanged a few words with Tommy Harris about lunch at the nearby Martinez Restaurant, one of their favorite haunts. But despite the close bond between the two, forged over two years of creating intrigues and counterplots spread across Europe and roundthe world, the enigmatic Harris was keeping not one but two secrets from his star agent: the deception plan that would hide D-Day from Hitler—code-named Operation Fortitude—was in deep trouble. And, even more worryingly, an Abwehr spy in Lisbon had recently revealed that he knew all about Garbo and could soon expose him to the Gestapo, ending his quest once and for all.
Unaware, Pujol began to write a message to the Germans in a beautiful, sloping hand. He was acquainted with secrets. He had a few of his own.

[18 juillet 1944 - Bataille des Haies]
Les Canadiens sont bloqués devant Caen, nous tentons donc une progression vers le sud-ouest, dans le bocage. Chaque haie est comme un bastion infranchissable, facilitant les prises de flancs par l’ennemi et rendant impossible l’alignement d’un front d’attaque. La visibilité est nulle, si bien que nos chars et nos hommes peinent à avancer. Nous nous battons mètre après mètre, vie après vie... Ils sont parfois plus de dix hommes à tomber pour conquérir une seule haie. Mais après des semaines d’enlisement, notre chance tourne enfin !
Un sergent de la 2e division blindée, Curtis G.Culin, a équipé nos Sherman de lames de métal permettant d’arracher les haies.
Les drôles de bobines de ces hedge-cutter(1) leur valent le sobriquet de « Rhinocéros » (1)Taille-haie

D-Day, 6 June 1944, was just the start of a campaign in Normandy that would rage on for over two months.
The @commonwealthwargraves’s Banneville-la-Campagne War Cemetery is testament to the fighting that took place in the area during July and August 1944 – as you will discover.

Enemy Tiger Tank Turns Turtle⁠

In the early stages of General Montgomery’s new offensive, which open east of the River Orne on 18th July, good progress was made along the east bank of the river. This German Tiger tank turned completely over when it was knocked out during the attack ⁠
