The inspection of the Colour Party on 10th June 2014 in front of the esplanade at Oradour-sur-Glane by Prime Minister Manuel Valls and Junior minister for Veterans and Defence Kader Arif. This was a crowded affair, in which Arif really seemed to take an interest in the soldiers. The gazebo from which the speeches were to be made is clearly visible to the right of centre and one can get a feel for the numbers of people attending the event. Valls is the man with the black hair, to the left of centre and Arif is the bald man standing on Valls's immediate right (and in front of the man wearing the cap with gold braid).
