Shah at Marshal de Gaulle’s funeral

The funeral arrangements were made in accord with what Mr. Pompidou read when he opened an envelope, on which was written “For Mr Funeral,” that was handed to him on Jan. 16, 1952.Ruling out a national funeral, the general had said that only the French armed forces could participate officially, but in modest numbers. There was to be no eulogy in Colombey or elsewhere, and no places were to be reserved except for the family, members of the Colombey Municipal Counci and companions’ of the Order of Liberation—tthose who were the first to join de Gaulle in 1940, when he called on France to continue the war against Nazi Germany.
