Twins with Airdislandvillage in England Old Lair (Ure) celebrated its English liberators at the 11-November event. A twin following the link that united the two cities in the 11th century William the Conqueror He distributed a certain number of lands in his new kingdom to his officials, notably building an abbey in Airdisland, which paid tribute to the abbey of Old Lyre.

So a new plaque was celebrated in honor of these two countries. “It is a reminder of the debt of memory we owe to these men who, despite incessant bombing, organized resistance and then the Allied landings, freed our country from Nazi occupation. It is to remember that it was Lady Diana’s father, the Englishman, who liberated our village and drove out the invader, and we see bomb holes marking the battle in our forests and in our fields. Then Hugh Vernon, resident of Ertisland, took the initiative to place next to their war memorial a plaque with all the citizens of Old Lair who fell on the field of honor during the two wars. So we return the favor to all those who died in Ertisland during the two great wars, many years late because of the epidemic.

I propose a minute’s silence in the name of these brave men who came to fight on our soil. Mark Morier, mayor of the city.
