Default Le Pas-de-Calais Libéré | Haillicourt | 2-5 September 2021

Who's going to this event this year? I will be there, albeit without vehicle, and would like to meet up with MLU members and see some Commonwealth vehicles.

Full name of this event is "Il était une fois le Pas-de-Calais Libéré" and may be better known by the names of the towns "Bethune" and "Souchez" where the event was held in the past.

Some pics of this event with a nice, laid back atmosphere. There were not so many participants as in previous years, especially the number of British participants was much much smaller than usual.

Most interesting vehicle from a Commonwealth point of view was this Morris-Commercial from France:

Another TA. There were quite some civilian cars acting as vehicles from the Forces françaises de l'intérieur (FFI, French resistance), but most of these are postwar vehicles.
