Long Description:
Le 4 novembre 1928, les maréchaux Foch et Milne et le lieutenant général Sir William Pulteney inaugurent un monument à la mémoire des 3 888 soldats du corps expéditionnaire britannique tombés d'août à octobre 1914 dans les combats de la première bataille de la Marne. À l'emplacement même de ce mémorial, le 10 septembre 1914, les hommes du général French, commandant en chef de l'armée britannique, traversent la Marne sur un pont de bateaux, chassant ainsi les troupes allemandes qui marchent sur Paris. Le ' Pont de l'Europe ' remplace désormais le pont de fortune réalisé à l'époque.
Pour valider votre découverte vous devrez joindre une photographie de vous devant le mémorial.
