Le Monument aux Morts, Trévières, Normandy.
This was a 1914-1918 war memorial to the dead of Trévières.
On D-Day (June 6th 1944) the memorial was damaged, possibly by shells from the 14 inch guns of USS Texas.
The locals later re-erected the fallen statue but did not repair her as a further memorial to the tragedy of war.
Trévières was liberated by US infantry after a tough 2 day battle with the defending German infantry, 9th/10th June 1944.
This is another old one from the archives, it’s 8 years since we visited the Normandy battlefields.
