French Freedom Fighters Monument Statue
Sculpture - Bronze Statue
Artist Stan Watts stands with his bronze sculptures, French Freedom Fighters soon after their unveiling at the Chad Marine Infantry Regiment's new headquarters in Colmar, France on July 27. Sculptor and foundry owner Stan Watts was commissioned to create this custom bronze sculpture as well as the bronze plaques for the pedestal of the monument. The statue commemorates the common soldiers who won the pivotal battle of Koufra, in Libya, for the Free French during W.W. II. On the left is a young Daniel Nevot, the war hero who commissioned the statues from Watts, and on the right is an unnamed colonial tirailleur or rifleman. At the onset of the war, the tirailleurs made up the majority of the Free French forces.
