The return of Charles de Gaulle
The limit between the two Norman localities of Courseulles-sur-Mer and Graye-sur-Mer is marked by a Cross of Lorraine, formerly called the Cross of Anjou. The monument is more than 60 ft high (18 m) and faces the sea. It commemorates the return of Charles de Gaulle to French soil on June 14, 1944, after crossing the Channel onboard the French destroyer La Combattante. The monumental cross was erected in 1990 on the centenary of the birth of General de Gaulle in the presence of his son, Admiral Philippe de Gaulle.
