Military ceremony in tribute to the 2nd Armoured Division

Just like every year, a tribute ceremony to General Leclerc’s 2nd Armoured Division who liberated Paris will be organised in the presence of municipal and national authorities.

The 2nd Armoured Division is set up in 1943 by General Leclerc. Composed of French, North African and foreign volunteers, the 2nd Armoured Division consisted of 13,000 men on August 1, 1944 when it landed in Normandy. It was also the first allied unit to enter Paris on 24 and 25 August 1944. The Division then continued its route towards Strasbourg and Germany.
