The theme was WWII. 64 years ago, an American pilot's plane was shot down in this area and the inhabitants of our village helped hide him from the Germans until he could rejoin his troop with the help of the French Resistance. He, his daughter, and his granddaughter came back to join us for the festival this year. Frederic and I got to meet them and speak with them for a little while.
|There is a local club that maintains a collection of old army vehicles, and they present them for occasions like this one.|
|Frederic and Benjamin got to go for a jeep ride around the village after more or less correctly filling out a questionnaire about WWII|
|The "Polly Frenchies" sang a few songs from that time period for us in both English and French.|
