The inspection of the Colour Party
The inspection of the Colour Party in front of the esplanade at Oradour-sur-Glane by Prime Minister Manuel Valls and Junior minister for Veterans and Defence Kader Arif. This was a crowded affair, in which Afir really seemed to take an interest in the soldiers. The gazebo from which the speeches were to be made is clearly visible to the right of centre and one can get a feel for the numbers of people attending the event.
