The original sign, proudly situated in the village of Buron along the Grande Communication GC 22, now the D 22, stretching from Creully ser Seulles to Caen, stands as a testament to history. This enduring symbol, tough, robust, and aesthetically pleasing, has been meticulously and affectionately reproduced by Vinsign. A cherished acquisition for collectors or a distinctive touch for decorators, the sign encapsulates the spirit of the era.
July 9 and 10, 1944, marked a pivotal moment as British and Canadian forces successfully seized the northern and western sectors of Caen. The city’s complete liberation by the Allies followed on July 19, 1944. In the aftermath, efforts were redirected towards breaking through to Falaise, with the strategic focus on the Caen-Falaise road. The resilience depicted in the sign echoes the tenacity of those days, making it not only a tangible artifact but also a poignant reminder of the historic events that unfolded in the pursuit of freedom.
