MIRABEAU

A Class 40 pontoon bridge over the Durance River near Mirabeau south of Avignon courtesy of the 10th Engineer Battalion. Forward elements reached the Durance
on August 23; crossings continued through the 25th by the 15th and 30th Regiments and the First French Armored Division as they moved ahead to assembly points
for the attack north. Pre-invasion plans targeted this crossing for October 15.
