Chartres Wreath Laying

On the 18th June, a major wreath laying ceremony took place in Chartres to commemorate the wartime Resistance and, in particular, the part played by the renowned Resistance leader, Jean Moulin.

The Chairman of Chichester District Council, Cllr Martyn Bell, (who also takes a lead in Chichester’s ‘Friends of Chartres Twinning Association) was invited by the Mayor of Chartres to participate in recognition of RAF Tangmere’s crucial wartime role in support of the Resistance and the fact that the former airfield and Museum are located in the District Council area.  Martyn was also invited to lay a wreath on the Museum’s behalf

In his public address at the ceremony, the Prefect of Chartres paid tribute to RAF Tangmere and explained the link to Jean Moulin.
