August 1944-1:87/1:76 (HO)/(OO)-F

 France- August 1944 cross roads with level crossing and  halt- with a game of petanque  in progress on the  terrain near the bar. Sunflower field or vineyard nearby? A small diorama.

Somewhere in France. The locals are returning home from work & have stopped off to have a drink and a game with their pals.Usually an all men pursuit especially  in the 40’s when this is set. The whole proceedings are somewhat upset, when a small collection of British and Allied forces with infantry , tanks etc are pausing to work out where they are and for fraternisation with some local girls.

It will be another two weeks before Paris is liberated…
