The Old Front Line Tour 2012 - Day Four

Last of all for day our, a visit to Arras.

Here we saw the Mur des Fusilles. A spot against the old Vauban defences of the city's Citadel where the German occupiers chose to execute by firing squad in excess of 200 local resistance fighters and others who disagreed with there regime.

An altogether evil place that I think we all found sobering.

Then back to the Arras CWGC and Memorial to the missing, before we foundation fritterie for our tea.
