The Collectif France 40

Collectif France 40

The France 40 Collectif brings together around thirty associations for the reenactment of the 1939-40 French army. It has been present at the Paris-Villaroche Air Legend since 2018.

This year, they will represent units related to the Third Land Army. They will thus implement:

  • an Airforce PC with six people: five aircrew and one ground personnel;
  • an Army PC with radio equipment, a staff officer, two secretaries and a radio operator;
  • a 25 mm anti-aircraft gun with six to nine servants.
    A person will also be present in civilian clothes from 1940.

Their camp will have four vehicles: 1 car (Renault Celtaquatre) and 3 motorcycles (Peugeot 125cc, Terrot 350CC and Gnome-Rhône AX2 with sidecar).

According to the possibilities allowed by the sanitary situation, they will entertain you with different displays and experiences: presentation of the radio material, usage of the gun, description of the flight dress, immersive briefing about aircraft recognition.
