Great French Military manoeuvres witnessed by Tsar Nicholas Featured Print

Great French Military manoeuvres witnessed by Tsar Nicholas

The Franco-Russian alliance of 1892 established privileged relations between France and Russia. Reciprocal protocol exchanges and visits were organised and Tsar Nicholas II was invited to the great manoeuvres of the East. Staying in Compiegne, he visited the north of Reims on 21 September 1901 and was welcomed by President Emile Loubet. The imperial delegation witnessed a vast deployment of 120, 000 men in the Betheny plain and the fort of Fresne-les-Reims concluded the demonstration with a spectacular attack, as shown on this postcard to mark the event. This card was actually sent on the day of his visit from Montmirail (which lies just to the south west of Reims). Date: 1901

Aviation competition at Rheims, 1909, Farman, Latham & Paulh

Page from the Bystander reporting on the record flights made at Rheims Aviation Meeting in 1909. showing the winner, Henri Farman who flew 116 miles in 3 hours, 4 minutes, Hubert Latham who flew 96 miles in 2 hours 18 minutes and Paulhan who flew 81 miles in 2 hours 43 minutes. The Bystander comments, 'the progress of aviation is admitted to equal that of automobilism itself, and today we see the aeroplane as a practical means of locomotion. In a few years, flight will be in vogue all over the country, and to fly will be one of the commonplaces of daily life'. The 'Grande Semaine d'Aviation' was intended to show French air superiority but it was in fact an American, Glen H. Curtiss, who won the Gordon Bennett race at the event. Date: 1909
