Liberty Road Marker French 2nd Armored Division Boischampré

A few meters from the M4A2 Sherman Keren tank, a “Liberty Road” milestone marks the passage of General Leclerc's French 2nd Armored Division and in particular the 501st Régiment de Chars de Combats.

It marks the 391 km to Saint-Martin-de-Varreville, where the French 2nd armored division landed on August 1, 1944 in the Utah-Beach sector.
