Sword Beach
Leon, Second-Maitre (Petty Officer) of the Commando Kieffer, was one of the 177 Frenchmen who took part in the Normandy landings on the beach known as "Sword Beach" alongside British forces as part of Commando N'4. Here he poses in front of one of the Ouistreham bunkers, with his comrades in the background holding the flag of the Free French Naval Forces.

After landing, the French commandos seized an artillery piece, then the Riva-Bella Casino, before heading inland via Colleville and Saint-Aubin-d'Arquenay to join up at Pegasus Bridge with British troops of the 6th Airborne Division. They then reached Amfreville, occupying the edge of the Plain. By the evening of June 6, they had lost almost 25% of their strength. In addition to the wounded, including Lieutenant-Commander Kieffer, two officers and eight men were killed.

Monnaie de Paris
Founded in 1864, not only is Monnaie de Paris France's longest standing institution, but it is also the oldest enterprise in the world. Today, the mint strikes circulation coins for France, as well as beautiful gold and silver commemorative coin programs that are each intricately designed works of art. The mint is also home to a museum that hosts exhibitions, tours and workshops as well as the Guy Savoy Restaurant.
