The Maire arrives to witness Richard and Sophia’s vows and give a great speech about pre-revolutionary France and the colours of the sash – blue for the revolution, white for the King and red for the city of Paris…… the precursor provinces of Aunis and Saintonge …… during the reception he also confirmed the oft repeated tale that the Germans ran the area from Le Petit Marais until driven out by the Macquis on 2nd September 1944.The Macquis then ran things from LPM until civil government was restored.
