Part of the honour guard at the cemetery in Oradour

    The French military laid on an honour guard at all the stages of the commemoration ceremony, part of which can be seen here. On the left is one of the civilian veterans lining the walkway around the mail memorial. The black plaque blaming "General Lammerding" for ordering the massacre can be seen on the end of the low wall: see close-up of plaque.
