CIOS members in St. Malo - 7th June 2014

18 Members of CIOS Jersey and Guernsey Branches traveled to St. Malo for a day trip led by Neil Walker and Colin Isherwood. Entitled “The Fall of Die Zitadelle August 1944” a guided ramble started off from Gare Maritime, through St. Servan to “Die Zitadelle” where the final moments of the fall of this great bastion of German defence in the area were recounted.

A tour of the “Musee 39/45” followed with an excellent English speaking tour guide. If that wasn’t enough a final push taking in the last few combat positions that time could allow for resulted in a jam packed day, thanks to everyone who took part and helped to make the day a real success!
