Act of Remembrance - Added November 2011

Back to main Photo Galleries listing

Each year on Armistice Day we remember the crew of a Halifax bomber, 5 of whom were killed, when the aircraft was shot down following a raid on the German battleship Scharnhorst at La Pallice, the port of La Rochelle, in July 1941.   Initially we visit the site of the crash in the commune of Angles near the village of Les Conches where the events leading to the crash are recounted and a cross placed on the memorial erected near the roadside.    We then drive the few kilometres to the Cemetery at Angles where the 5 young airmen are buried in graves maintained by the War Graves Commission.   Following a short service a two minutes silence is observed; and crosses and poppies are  placed on the graves.   This year, 2011, the service was taken by the Reverend Herbie Floate and the day was remarkably warm with continuous sunshine
