    Hey guys. I would like to share this video with you, I made this from March 28, 2013.
    French Armed forces had a memorial event under Arc de triomphe de l'Étoile (I'm not pretty sure is it for WW2 or not)
    I happened to be there when I had one day trip with my university.
    Salute to all war heroes. I hope you like it.

    Cheers for sharing that.
    Did you get to go up to the top of the Arc at all ?

    At last, nope...
    My bus left around 2000 from Bercy. It's already 1920 when it finished. So I started walk back. Maybe next time.
    One day trip for Paris is tough. Too much grounds to cover, I had to walk and run for 8 hours without even sitting somewhere.
    But... I'm so enjoyed this huge surprise! :)

    It was a Commémoration for North African war Veterans and civilian casualties (1954-1962) .

    I Notice Gendarmes units , the Republican Guard and some Paratrooper units. The Flag bearers are the actual Veterans. Not too many survivors are there nowadays.

    Nice to blunder into something unexpected isn't it....And I love that anthem...probably the most stirring anthem of any nation.
