    French Navy International Fleet Review 70th anniversary of the Landing in Provence.

    Royal Navy's HMS Echo and HMS Ramsey joined ships from half a dozen nations off Toulon to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of southern France. Vessels sailed along the Côte d’Azur before saluting the French President and veterans of Operation Dragoon who were aboard the carrier Charles de Gaulle. The people of Provence lined their shores to watch a procession of warships from six nations, led by the hosts, parade along the Côte d’Azur from Cannes to Toulon. It was along this stretch of coastline on August 15 1944 that the liberation of southern France began – Operation Dragoon. Although eclipsed by the landings and subsequent fighting in Normandy, Dragoon was a massive operation, requiring the involvement of well over 40 Royal Navy vessels and several Fleet Air Arm squadrons.

    It was also hugely successful. Within a fortnight, the Germans had all but abandoned the south of France.Seven decades later, and ships from the USA, Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia as well as the UK accepted the invitation of the Marine Nationale to join it for anniversary events.The ships in the sail past formed one large column as they entered the Bay of Toulon, where they were treated to an aerial display by more than 20 helicopters, Rafael and Super Étendard jets, maritime patrol aircraft and the Patrouille de France – the French equivalent of the Red Arrows.“I have never seen so many ships and aircraft in such close formation together it was really remarkable" said AB (Diver) Scott Hulme, one of HMS Ramsey’s clearance diving teams.
