About: Blagny is a commune in the Department of the Ardennes (northeast of France), approximately 30 miles east-southeast of Sedan. The monument lists the names of 31 soldiers and civilians from the Blagny area who fell in World War I. It shows a "poilu"* (WWI French soldier nickname) engraving an inscription: "N'oubliez jamais" (Never forget). *"Poilu" is an informal term for a late 18th Century, early 20th Century French infantryman, meaning, literally, hairy one. It is still widely used as a term of endearment for the French infantry of World War I. The word carries the sense of the infantryman's typically rustic, with an agricultural background. The "Poilu" is also known for its bushy mustaches and his love of his ration of cheap wine. Propaganda and war memorials widely used the image of the dogged, bearded French soldier. The stereotype of the "Poilu" was of bravery and endurance. The Renault KZ is an automobile of the Renault Make. The vehicle was produced from 1923 to 1932 under the trade name Renault 10CV. From 1931 to 1935, it changed the name and became the Renault Primaquatre, and from 1932 to 1935, it changed the name again and became the Renault Vivaquatre. The Renault 10CV is the trade name of a Renault automobile produced from 1903 to 1912 and then from 1919 to 1933. (Credit: Wikipedia).
