Nice varied selection. BTW, that's a French Army arc, commemorating the valiant defence of Bir Hakeim by the 1st Free French Brigade during the Battle of Gazala in N. Africa, c. 42.

"We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!"
