Stone marker in memory of the French Expeditionary Corps in Italy 1943-44. The Corps, assembled in North Africa in 1943, was made up of men from many backgrounds. A large majority of the combat forces was of Muslim origin, and were lauded by General de Gaulle as being "troops of the first order, singularly well-suited to mountain combat."
The corps was commanded by General Alphone Juin, a Marshal of France.
