Football = 14th July 1944 - https://www.ouest-france.fr/normandie/bayeux-14400/75e-d-day-le-club-de-foot-de-bayeux-affrontera-les-militaires-britanniques-comme-en-1944-6248592 I had a quick look for a ref. to this in the SRY wardiary... "14th July 1944 - Remained in orchard. General re-organisation . Sqn Ldrs Conference in morning at which Brigadier looked in. Points raised at the previous days conference were discussed. Suggestions made for close tie up between ourselves and Air for direct Div Sp. And also for using a reserve Squadron for a Squadron shoot on selected targets. Two new officers arrived for attachment only, to accustom them to Field Conditions." But sadly it isn't in there, which is a bit of a pity. I think from memory the 24th L "played football" in Normandy also, though this SRY one might have been a bit more organised - i.e. given that the SRY were in on the liberation of Bayeux etc. Edit: There is another version of the picture here: Collaborators, Fighters And Refugees: 45 Fantastic Photos Of The Normandy French After D-Day - Flashbak With a bit of text: "For the first time since 1939, French men and women in the liberated towns and villages of Normandy were able openly to celebrate on July 14th, Bastille Day, without fear of German reprisals. In the little town of Coursoulles near the coast, where this picture was taken in July 1944, British troops played a football match against the local French team and all the towns folk turned out to watch the game. The match in progress with enthusiastic spectators crowding the touch-line.
