63th anniversary of D-Day

Carentan Airborne Festival 2007

 

Several hundreds of participants took part in the Carentan Airborne Festival which held on June 2nd, 2007. It was for these reenactors the opportunity to wear their uniforms and equipment to commemorate the sacrifice of the Allies soldiers during the Normandy landings. They have taken the same road used on D-Day.
Thanks to Patrick Brion for having graciously agreed to publish on this site some of the pictures here.
