6-3 FSSF - Maritime Alps - Southern France - June 2008


Recommended Posts

To add a French touch to Bilko's post, here are a few pictures of our weekend with Sam Magee 6-3 FSSF (Sam went all the way with the Force Kiska - Cassino - Anzio - Rome - Southern France). We welcomed him in a former 3rd Regiment CP near Mt Meras where we reenacted a small FSSF outpost and then spent the rest of the weekend with him visiting the FSSF area, especially the places where his 3rd Regiment was. We also visited the major FSSF monuments in the area and visited a local collector who has been collecting FSSF leftovers for over 20 years. A great weekend.

Amazing, this must have been a great weekend. I had some opportunities to visit WWII battlefields in the company vets. It is one of my most cherished memories.

That must have been so educational to talk to Sam.

I am very jealous.
