On Tuesday, July 18, as part of his travels related to the First World War centenary, Prince Albert II visited Côté 186 in the commune of Cormicy in the French department of Marne. The Sovereign stopped at the observation point of the French frontline on the German border, not far from the famous "Chemin des Dames" where three battles were fought.
This battleground had been visited by his great-great-grandfather Prince Albert I on August 9, 1916, accompanied by his son, Hereditary Prince Louis II, then enlisted in the French Army, a liaison officer of the Fifth Army, who controlled this territory.[caption id="attachment_19485" align="alignnone" width="993"] Photo: G.

In the company of Dominique Decaudin, Mayor of Cormicy, Prince Albert II climbed several hundred meters of elevation to reach this strategic location, where there remains a casemate, in the middle of a forest still scarred by bombings.
On this occasion the prince unveiled a pupitre, a commemorative stand, which was dedicated on the initiative of the Association "Cormicy ma ville, son histoire" (My city, its history).[caption id="attachment_19483" align="alignnone" width="993"] Photo: G.
