Hi all, it’s been a while since I’ve posted ~ just been too busy with life & work.
Here are a couple of images of one of a series of markers that have been erected in the South Touraine to mark the position of the World War 2 demarcation line between Occupied and Vichy France (1940-42). If other would like to share images of similar markers then do let me know. I know nothing of this initiative to geographically mark this socially important historic period, so, again, if anyone can supply background information on these markers then just get in touch.
Just click on any picture below to view a larger image.
