PENTHIEVRE QUAY, VERNON, MONUMENT TO THE BRITISH FORCES.

MONUMENT TO THE NOTTINGHAMSHIRE SHERWOOD RANGERS ARMOURED CORPS.

After the ceremonies in Vernonnet, the ceremony party crossed back over the Seine to the Monument to the British Forces, With the Monument to The Nottinghamshire Sherwood Rangers Armoured Corps close by. 

At this location I had the chance to speak to the French gentleman, in fluent English ,wearing a green fleece at the end of this folder in photo 29 & 30, talking to Arthur Gough & Richard Fox.  He told me he was 7yrs old when Vernon was liberated and his parents took him to see the German gun sited on the cliffs on the opposite side of the river. Time being short as we had to follow the procession to the bridge monument, I could not carry on the talk we had earlier. SO , Sir, if you read this please get in touch!!

Sebastian I only had time to give you website card. We would like to see the rest of the photos you have, please Contact us via website.
